California Plain.
Remembering Barns.

Photographs by Morley Baer.
Stanford University Press, Stanford, 2002. 120 pp., numerous duotone illustrations, 9¾x10¾".

One of the great photographers of the West Coast School whose main proponents and more widely known practitioners include Edward Weston and Ansel Adams, Morley Baer (b. 1916-1995) continues to gain well-deserved recognition. His last major monograph, Light Years, is a classic of the genre and Stones of the Sur (Cat# SU006H, $60) from 2001 is equally contemplative. Baer was also an avid architectural photographer, and over the course of years developed a body of work that took the slowly disappearing barn as its subject. Presenting these agrarian icons in all their austerity, Baer managed to steer clear of sentimentality and the desire by most to romanticize rural life. What he did accomplish, however, is a testament to the welcoming nature of simple architecture amidst a glorious Western landscape. Read Publisher's Description.
