John Szarkowski Photographs
Photographs by John Szarkowski. Text by Sandra Phillips.
Bulfinch, New York, 2005. 156 pp., 84 tritone illustrations, 10x10".

For just shy of 40 years—1962 to 1991—John Szarkowski stood at the helm of the photography department of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, scanning the horizons of the art world and ably steering the public's perception towards rich, previously uncharted territory. His singular pen, at once witty and penetrating, brought us such classic critical pieces as Looking at Photographs and The Photographer's Eye; he championed the work of little-known photographers, such as Winogrand and Arbus, who challenged accepted norms, creating shows and books around their work. Throughout this time, he steadfastly refused to promote his own image-making, even though his photographic life before MoMA had already produced a critically acclaimed book on the architecture of Louis Sullivan. This handsome new book seeks to show us what the great critic has been up to all these years. An in-depth interview with Szarkowski about his own photographic life, by historian and photographer Bill Jay, will appear in our Summer issue.
