Emmet Gowin's first retrospective book. "It is Gowin's sensibility, rather than any specific visual style or carefully plotted ideational thrust, which is the hallmark and the unifying force of his oeuvre...The emotional intensity of his work does not manifest itself in the recording of major events or massive feelings, but in his keen attunement to (and precise registration of) the nuances of minor and common events."--A.D. Colemen Scarce in hardbound.
