Titel: Mitch Epstein: Work
Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: When Die Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur in Cologne, Germany invited Mitch Epstein to make an exhibition in 2006 of his work from past to present, it was the perfect opportunity to fill a gap in his publishing history. Widely acknowledged as one of the world's most distinguished art photographers, here, for the first time, Epstein has gathered his photographs together into a book that presents the span of his career. Mitch Epstein: Work allows readers to trace the evolution of his formal and thematic concerns. We see how his aesthetic views, photographic tools, and politics have transformed and influenced one another over time. This book offers a look at each of Epstein's major projects - "Common Practice" (1973-89); "Vietnam" (1992-95); "The City" (1995-98); "Family Business" (2000-03), and his current, ongoing "American Power." His early work on the theme of recreation is given its most natural yet unexpected configuration: images from the United States are mixed with those from other parts of the world. A short essay by the artist or an excerpt from his previously published writings orients each chapter. The book includes a DVD of his film, "Dad." Many of the pictures here have never been seen before, let alone published. For Epstein fans and for those who would like an introduction to the artist's work, this book is a necessary addition to their library. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_3865212816
Inhaltsangabe: While Mitch Epstein is widely acknowledged as one of the world's most distinguished art photographers, a complete survey of his work has never been published until now. Mitch Epstein: Work invites readers to trace the evolution of Epstein's entire career, following formal and thematic concerns that reveal how his aesthetics, his techniques and his politics have shifted and influenced one another over time.

Each of his major projects cover Common Practice (1973-1989), Vietnam (1992-1995), The City (1995-1998), Family Business (2000-2003), and the current, ongoing American Power. The beginning of each chapter includes a short essay by the artist or an excerpt from his previously published writings. An afterword by Eliot Weinberger and a DVD of Epstein's film Dad round out the package. Many of the pictures here have never before been exhibited or published.
