New York: Lustrum Press, 1973. First edition. Paperback. As new copy still in the original shrinkwrap. This is Gibson's second monograph. Approx 50 black and white plates with no text. 4to size bound in the original perfect bound wrappers, as issued. Gibson, one of the leading figures in modern photography, was influenced as a young man by Dorthea Lange and Robert Frank, both of whom he assisted in the 1960s. Gibson developed a personal aesthetic, based on stark contrasts, graphic precision, and suggestive mystery, through his encounters with European film, literature, and music. And, as founder of Lustrum Press, Gibson also published monographs dedicated to the photographs of then-unknown artists Larry Clark (Tulsa, 1971), Danny Seymour (A Loud Song, 1972), and Mary Ellen Mark (Passport, 1974). Others published under the Lustrum imprint include Robert Frank, Manuel Alvarez-Bravo, Paul Caponigro, and Robert Mapplethorpe. A fine copy. Item #ESB11145
