Item description for Henry Wessel by Thomas Zander...

This retrospective look at the career of Henry Wessel, one of the late twentieth century's most original and dryly funny photographers, tracks his contribution to the New Topographics movement of the 1970s and continues through more than 30 years of incisive observations on the American social landscape. In 133 photographs, it offers up a range of work from the earliest in the 1960s to a recent series on Las Vegas, made between 2000 and 2004. Throughout, Wessell not only chronicles the idiosyncrasies and anomalies of Southern California and the American West, but demonstrates over and over that photography can surpass its documentary role to speculate and to suggest narratives within and beyond the frame. Ultimately, he challenges not only our expectations of his medium, but our ways of seeing and our preconceptions about the familiar. Sandra Phillips, Curator of Photography at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, writes of his emergence from the era's pack, "Wessel's remarkable work, witty, evocative and inventive, is distinctive and at the same time a component part of the great development of photography which flourished in the 1970s. The pictures continue to grow and evolve and the work is now regarded as an individual and important contribution to twentieth-century American photography."

Reviews - What do customers think about Henry Wessel?

Henry Wessel by Sandar Phillips  May 31, 2008
I was somewhat disappointed in this book. It seems the editors picked the leftovers of his portfolio and saturated them in between some of Wessel's good work. This is the risk of buying a book without getting to look at it first.
Good Imaes - Mediocre Reproduction  Aug 28, 2007
The images are full of a dry wit. The reproduction is quite washed out. Printing technology is way ahead of what was produced here.
Significant style of photography  Aug 23, 2007
He looks deeply into America, and developes his own vision. Take a look even if it isn't exactly your idea of a truly GREAT photograph.
