Unveilings.

Photographs by Lynn Stern. Foreword by Paul Caponigro. Essay by Diane Wakoski.
Hudson Hills Press, New York, 1989. 64 pp., 41 b&w duotone illustrations,, 9x10".

This exquisite book documents the artist's many years of photographing flowers. Stern utilizes an interesting combination of thin satin fabric and white and black anemones as a means to capture light. In the course of her experimentation she found that the best of her silver prints communicate not just depth, but also luminosity and movement. The photographs are combined with poetry by Richard Wilbur and Diane Wakoski, and Wakoski's essay about the photographs deals with the relationship of Stern's images to the unveiling ceremony in Jewish ritual, and thus with the artist's use of light as her challenge to death.
