Photographs by Nicholas Nixon. Text by Carlos Gollonet and Nicholas Nixon.
160 pp., numerous color and black-and-white illustrations, 11½x11½".
This is the first in a new series of extremely well-produced books from Spanish publisher Tf. Editores (Madrid) which will soon include titles on Edward Weston, Harry Callahan, William Eggleston, and Richard Misrach (stay tuned—no others available yet). The format of these books is to present careful selections of the artists' oeuvre accompanied by biographical and artistic chronologies. This ambitious enterprise has commenced with a book on Bostonian Nicholas Nixon. The book is roughly 12" square and lushly printed. Selections from Nixon's various bodies of work are organized under the headings Views, People, Brown Sisters, Family Pictures, Old People, People with AIDS, and Couples. A helpful essay by Carlos Gollinet introduces the photographs, with brief descriptions written by Nixon opening each new section. Recent photographs of Boston, taken by Nixon, were featured in Blind Spot 23 (Cat# MZ146S). Nothing else on the artist is currently available.
