8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Conrad J. Obregon TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 22, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Too often photographers and photography viewers forget the links between photography and the other arts. Keeping these links in mind might lead to better vision and better understanding and appreciation of images.

"Edward Hopper & Company" is just the book to make and reinforce those links. Originally prepared as a catalogue of a show at the Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco, the book consists of several paintings and drawings by Edward Hopper, a giant of twentieth century representational painting, and a collection of photographs by Robert Adams, Diane Arbus, Harry Callahan, William Eggleston, Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Lee Friedlander and Stephen Shore, all giants in the pantheon of photography. The book shows the connections between Hopper's form and content and that of the photographers.

The written commentary in the book is negligible and that is appropriate, because the pictures in the book speak so clearly that further explanation would be redundant. Consider the first picture in the book, which depicts a store window in Duluth. Unless one knew every picture in Hopper's oeuvre and none of the work of Stephen Shore, one would be sure this was a Hopper painting, until one looked at the small label describing the photograph. This similarity to Hopper's work in both form and content is obvious in every image in the book.

There is certainly food for thought here. Did the photographers see Hopper's work and try to copy it? Or was there something in the air that simultaneously developed the same vision in the painter and the photographers, like the similar work on evolution by Matthew, Wallace and Darwin.
