Item description for Reflex: A Vik Muniz Primer by Vik Muniz & Lesley A. Martin...

An American artist of Brazilian origin, Vik Muniz has come to stand out as one of the most articulate and innovative artists of his generation, equally at home working with images of chocolate sauce, spaghetti marinara, or the detritus of hole punchers.
In doing so, he has carved out a unique niche within contemporary photography: one of trickster and philosopher as well as creator of compelling and delightful images. Reflex: A Vik Muniz Primer is a privileged, guided tour of the contents of Muniz's pyrotechnic imagination. The collection of essays Muniz contributes walks us through each of his major series, and unveils the thinking and historical influences behind each image.

Reviews - What do customers think about Reflex: A Vik Muniz Primer?

Great writer as well  Apr 6, 2007
I agree with "mdr" that the book only scratches the surface and presents just couple of works of most of artists series. I have to admit, I am not that super much into his art. But the writings are the most interesting part of the book. Mr.Muniz is very good at writing of his process of making art. It's interesting to get into artist's mind.
I like the chocolate cover  Jan 30, 2006
Overall, this is great retrospective book of Vik Muniz. Several comprehensive essays and interviews. I would have wished if his early works, chocolate works, and the dust series (whitney show) have been more presented as they are critical for Vik Muniz's career. However, amongst the several Muniz books, this is probably the best one (but could be better in the future).
