Photogarphs by Robert Heinechken.
Ridinghouse, London, 2012. 144 pp., 75 color illustrations, 9½x12".
A long awaited and comprehensive monograph on Robert Heinecken (1931– 2006), one of America’s most influential contemporary, conceptual photographers, reflects the increasing appreciation of his work. Heinecken, who headed the photo program at UCLA for three decades, rarely used a camera: his definition of photography encompassed everything related to the photo. Rather than focusing on the photographic image as a creation derived solely from a camera, his interest was on the relation of methods and formalism – often in an irreverent and humorous way – to popular media. This overview of Heinecken’s work from the 1960s through the 1990s features a complete reproduction of one of the artist’s best-known works: Are You Real series (1964-1968), besides his numerous forward thinking bodies of work. The extensive illustrations and comprehensive essay make this book on Heinecken a real must for all art libraries, personal and academic.
