Product Details

Editorial Reviews


The ordinary, spontaneous moments in Rauschenberg's pictures are observed with a focused eye and lyric purity that one also sees in the photographs of Allen Ginsberg or Alfred Stieglitz. On the cover is a photographic self-portrait in which Rauschenberg incorporates his own reflection in a mirror holding a camera, framed within one of his combines. "I've never stopped being a photographer," he said. (Philip Gefter The Photobook Review 2012-11-01)

Robert Rauschenberg: Photographs 1949 - 1962 (D.A.P) comes as something of a surprise, if not a revelation. Although his photographs are nowhere near as original as his art, they're solid examples of a midcentury American style that zeroed in on the vernacular, the ephemeral, and the everyday. (Vince Aletti Photograph 2012-01-01)

"Rauschenberg turns out to have been a natural, breezily brilliant with a camera, never more so than when shooting his circle of artist friends." (Jerry Saltz New York Magazine 2011-09-21)

"Robert Rauschenberg: Photographs 1949-1962" (Shirmer/Mosel, $75) is a thorough (though not exhaustive) collection; many of these photographs were personally permitted at one point or another, by the artist, to be published or displayed. As such, the catalog offers a unique and focused view from the eye of a tremendously energenic and industrious artist, whose purview seemed to exclude nothing. (Matt Mccann The New York Times Style Magazine 2011-09-16)
