Emmet Gowin: Photographs. Text by Martha Chahroudi. Philadelphia Museum of Art, Bulfinch Press, Boston, 1990. 127 pp. Stiff illustrated wrappers. Squarish quarto. Numerous halftone illustrations.
Published in conjunction with a major exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, this handsome volume provides a retrospective look at the first 25 years of Emmet Gowin's career. From his early (and continuing) series of intimate photographs of his wife, children, and extended family, on through his later landscape work-- including images of Mt. St. Helens, Ireland, and the ancient city of Petra in Jordan, as well as several stunning aerial photographs-- this mid-career monograph provides an exciting sampling of Gowin's work. The reproductions are extraordinary.
A just about Very Fine copy with only the faintest rubbing; 'kisses' to one corner of front wrapper and tail of spine.
