Presents the American artist/photographer's most powerful images from the 1970's to the present. Cohen, who began her career as a successful sculptor, turned to photography in 1971. She has never looked back even though she has retained one crucial concept of modern sculpture: The installation. Like many artists and photographers, Lynne Cohen scrounges around for archival, vintage and "found" photographs "from the real world" and then re-assembles them as her own dazzling "artificial" installations, that is to say, her Duchamp-inspired celebration and critique of the world we live in and how it came to be that way. Her work is concerned with "psychological, sociological, intellectual, and political artifice, and her later pictures reveal a preoccupation with deception, manipulation, and control. These are images that force us to ask ourselves what kind of world we have made" (Publisher's blurb). A major achievement. A "must-have" title for Lynne Cohen collectors. This copy is prominently and beautifully signed in black fountain pen on the half-title page by Lynne Cohen. This title has been out-of-print as a hardcover for a long time and is now very difficult to find in collectible condition. This is the only signed copy available online and has no flaws, a pristine "found" beauty. A very scarce signed copy thus. 120 plates. One of the finest living artist/photographers. A flawless collectible copy. . ISBN 0500542406. $150.00
