PHOTOGRAPHS. Introduction by Harold Rosenberg

New York: Horizon Press, (1959). First edition. Hardcover. Tall 4to. The photographer's first book. The dedication reads, "Homage to Charles Egan who first exhibited many of these photographs at his New York gallery during the years 1947-1954". Blank sheet tipped-in opposite the stark, bold title page (so no offsetting). "These beautiful photographs are revelations of how nature devours art, and how an artist, Aaron Siskind, by disciplined intuition, has been able to recognize the forms of art in the digestion of nature, and to preserve them in the timeless moment it takes for a shutter to open and close. Black cloth printed in red, silver and black (cover and spine). A crisp, fine copy, in a near fine, clean dust jacket. Item #13821

Price: $450.00
