Item description for Richard Misrach: Chronologies by Richard Misrach...

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 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.

A great book by a great photographer  Aug 18, 2006

JUST PLAIN SICK  Aug 1, 2006
top notch everything: IMAGES, REPRODUCTION, DESIGN - this book is an instant classic, and a great coming together of different but connecting projects. just amazing.
i love it  Jul 15, 2006
I saw this exhibit at the Fraenkel Gallery and while a book can never really have the same feel, this one comes close with it's large size and photos that cover the whole page. The layout is just great and the photographs are perfect to enjoy over and over.
lesser known master  Jun 14, 2006
this book is insane, especially if you don't know misrach's work and are interested in color photography. he was not only one of the first to use the medium of color, his work remains some of the most poignant, socially significant, and beautiful. i'm not sure why he isn't more 'popular,' maybe this new volume will help put him where he belongs - up there with anyone before or since.
Great Photorapher at his Best!!!!!  Mar 10, 2006
I am the owner of 5 Misrach books,if you only by one, "CHRONOLOGIES" is the best.High quality printed,you'll estimate the value of Misrach's pictures,all the shades of color are visible in very big size.Only one regret this site's packing are not strong enough I get my book realy damage.
