Jachna's "Or Water Is: A Photographic Meditation". Mysterious yet luminous photographs of bodies of water. "For a decade between the late 1950's and the late 1960's, his desire to photograph water in its many states became a powerful metaphorical tool connecting him, and us, to the elemental richness of life. These photographs provide a calming and meditative experience" (Publisher's blurb). What water is: A metaphor for tranquillity and majesty, for reflection and action. An absolute "must-have" title for Joseph D. Jachna collectors. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Exhibition Catalog available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with tonally rich plates. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JOSEPH D. JACHNA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). $40.00
