Exhibition Catalog. One of the most beautiful catalogs on the photographic art and achievement of Wynn Bullock. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. There is no ISBN. The Exhibition Catalog is now scarce. An austerely elegant production by Laurence Miller Gallery: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial softcovers, which feature one of the photographer's most celebrated images on the cover, and titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Wynn Bullock. Introduction by Laurence Miller. Essay by Keith F. Davis. Printed in tritone on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. The reproduction quality is exemplary in every respect. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name at the Laurence Miller Gallery in New York City from October 18 to December 21, 2001. Presents "Wynn Bullock: Realities And Metaphors". The unpublished - and in many instances up until then, largely unknown - work of the artist/photographer who died in 1975, in sumptuous reproductions. A posthumous exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1976 helped cement Wynn Bullock's reputation as one of America's most important photographers, which the present exhibition updates and explores further. Such images as "Let There Be Light" (1954) and "Child In Forest" (1951) are now iconic and widely collected. Abstract studies, nudes, landscapes, experimental work (particularly the eerily haunting 1970 photogram, "Forest And Sun"), and portraits of rural American life that are strangely unsentimental yet deeply affecting: Whether he was taking photographs to express a rich mental life or simply capturing ordinary reality, Wynn Bullock left his indelible mark on each image. An absolute "must-have" title for Wynn Bullock collectors. This title is a contemporary art photography classic. This is one of few copies of the First Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: This is an Exhibition Catalog, and as such, is neither a full-fledged book nor a monograph. But it is a pioneering landmark publication for Wynn Bullock completists, is very beautifully produced, and comes with an Essay by Keith F. Davis that appears in this catalog only. Copies available online have serious flaws. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce copy thus. 35 tritone plates. One of the greatest artist/photographers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER WYNN BULLOCK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). $40.00
