Format: Hardcover
Sixty years of shooting. Her work is absolutely gorgeous.
I had the great luck of meeting Barbara recently at a party where this book was sitting on the coffee table.
She proceeded to go through the book and discuss various work and what was involved in their creation.
Just an amazing vision. and constantly innovating and evolving. Yet always gorgeous and inviting.
One of her newer works was also on display at this private gathering and it was absolutely mind blowing to experience in person. Hypnotic.....mesmerizing.
almost an organic version of standing in front of a bank of tv screens all tuned to different channels.
(this piece by the way, is the first thing you'll see at her show at Chicago's Cultural Center, opening Oct. 1st. don't miss this show!)
this book is beautiful and sumptuously printed (and I'm very picky), spans her whole career, from her days at the ID (shout out!) to her time at the AIC and beyond.
Her work is amazing and inspiring. There is a sophisticated elegance about all her imagery, I call it delicious.
She's an original and a classic. and still shooting.
this book deserves a place on your shelf.
Highly recommended
