Exhibition catalog. The first and only edition. Published in a very small and limited print run as a softcover original only. There is no ISBN. A brilliant production by David Williams: Regular-sized volume format. Plain softcovers, as issued. Photographs by Edmund Teske. Printed on thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. In integral pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine and very large flaps, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held jointly by the Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago from March 7 through April 26, 2003 and Barry Singer Gallery Los Angeles from April 5 through June 21, 2003. The exhibitions show the range of Edmund Teske's work as a peerless artist/photographer/visionary. Teske's architectural photography was magisterial in a straightforward and realistic way. A lifelong disciple of Walt Whitman and later a convert of Vedanta, his art evolved into a much more personal and inward-looking vein, which has been characterized as "Romantic". The Bauhaus influence (Teske taught at the Bauhaus School of Chicago) led him to various experiments using techniques such as solarization, superimposition, multiple exposures, composite printing, and duotoning, all with breathtaking results. Yet ultimately, it is Teske's mystical vision in all its poetic beauty that will move the viewer of these photographs, which are some of the most beautiful ever made by an artist. Teske's work evolved dramatically and demands to be seen in its entirety, now possible through the Permanent Collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum, which owns the single largest public collection of his work. A "must-have" title for Edmund Teske collectors. This title was not sold commercially to the public and is now collectible . This is one of very few copies still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A very scarce copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. One of the greatest artists of the 20th century. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER EDMUND TESKE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). $30.00
