Some of his finest and most representative black-and-white images, in one elegant volume. "He succeeds in imbuing truth and beauty, even as the subjects inescapably change and disappear" (Britta Konau). John Goodman trained with the late Minor White, and says that he would never have become a photographer, much less a good one, were it not for the great photographer's tutelage and example. An absolute "must-have" title for John Goodman collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and inscribed in black pen-marker on the Souvenir Card that comes with it by the photographer: "Paul, Thank you for your help and the Meridien Printing connection. I am so glad this catalogue was produced. Certainly all your catalogues over the years have been an inspiration. Best, John". The recipient is Paul Berlanga, the Chicago-based photography expert and important artist/painter. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed and inscribed copy of the First Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with tritone plates. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine copy.
