Photographs and writings by Frederick Sommer.
Center for Creative Photography, Tucson, AZ, 1984. 142 pp., 9½x11".
This is the first of a series of books by the Center for Creative Photography in which the artist collaborates with the designer in order to produce an original work which is quite different that the traditional monograph. Volume 1, Sommer: Images contains examples of Frederick Sommer's major works including portraiture, nude abstractions, cut paper, collage, straight landscapes, soft focus nudes, musical scores and drawings. Sommer: Words brings together previously published writings from Aperture 10:4, a booklet entitled "The Poetic Logic of Art and Aesthetics," a revised talk given at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1970, and several other writings on aesthetics. A beautiful selection of words and images by this enigmatic artist.
