Richard Misrach: Chronologies артикул 1890a.

Richard Misrach is among the most influential, prolific, and internationally recognized photographers working today Best known for his epic ongoing project, Desert Cantos--an extensive and unique photographic exploration of place--Misrach consistently addresses political and social issues through the adaptation of different photographic овайв strategies, even as he expands notions of traditional landscape practice, and builds a complex and poignant document of American culture His subjects have included manmade floods and fires, military bombing ranges, mass graves of dead animals, sublime night skies, and details of paintings housed in the museums of the Southwest In one recent series, On the Beach--which was inspired by Nevil Shute's postapocalyptic novel of the 1950s--Misrach's color photographs deal with the human figure seen at a distance on an unspecified beach or in the water, observed from an unsettling and difficult-to-identify point of view located high above Misrach's newest publication, Chronologies is a compelling study of the photographer's process over the past 30 years Stripped of their original context, the photographs--presented in chronological order--illuminate how the photographer thinks and works Through fits and starts, reiterations and detours, the work evolves and matures, weaving in and out of the series for which Misrach has become known Side-by-side, classic images and never-before-seen pictures flesh out the photographer's logic and complicate it at the same time Ultimately, Chronologies is about time: The span of thirty years, the importance of time in each photograph, the chronology of a life within its time, and the book itself as a timepiece [Misrach] offers a totally convincing sense of place--the Mohave, the California inlands, the Nevada deserts, over which he has roamed repeatedly His moment of perception is always the present, gritted in by sand ochres and limned by sage green, mauve, and blond hues often emerging into an exquisite bleached depth, though sometimes reddened by dusk or fires Misrach lives such moments to their sensory brim without standing on any ceremony He gives us the feeling that what happens out there in the nominal wild happens for him and to him quite in advance of being filtered through any memory of art --Max Kozloff American Art, National Museum of Art, Smithsonian Institution Clothbound, 15 x 12 in /280 pgs / 135 color.  2006 г Твердый переплет, 280 стр ISBN 1933045280.
