Item description for Mitch Epstein: Work by Mitch Epstein & Eliot Weinberger...
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. His early work on recreation is given its most natural yet unexpected configuration: Images from the United States are mixed with those from other parts of the world. 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.

Great transaction Feb 4, 2008
Great to deal with. Would have recieved product as scheduled if DHL did'nt lose it for a couple of days during shipping, but this was not the sellers fault.
very good Jan 9, 2008
If you have a love for photography and a decent understanding of how composition works I would recommend this book as a great addition to your home library. the book takes you on a very personal tour of a photographer's experience as any good photography book should. The photography and print quality of the book made it a very good purchase and the writing was equally as sharp as the photos. A great gift for anyone who is a seasoned veteran photographer or a rookie photographer, this book will help their love of photography to flourish.
