Philip Trager Oct 12, 2006
A spectacular book! The photographs are beautiful and are reproduced exquisitely Although this is a retrospective book, a number of the images are published here for the first time. Although I own most of Tragers books, I wouldn't be without this deluxe volume. Seeing Trager's lifes work provides insight into the artists iconic, expressionistic images.
Superb overview Oct 11, 2006
A complete overview of a life in photography. A superb, comprehensive book full of forty years of Tragers landmark, expressionistic photographs with excellent essays and an interesting interview. This book is a model for all that a retrospective book should be. Trager has a distinctly personal vision. He has made a unique contribution to dance and architectural photography. He deserves the critical plaudits he has always received.
