184 CAPONIGRO, Paul) Paul Caponigro. in dustjacket
Aperture, Millerton, N.Y., 1972, 
(CAPONIGRO, Paul). Paul Caponigro. (Millerton, N.Y.) : An Aperture Monograph, (1972). Pp (4),5-73,(7). Illustrated. 4to, pale green cloth, lettered inblue. "Paul Caponigro is a poet among photographers. His work has a rhythm ic quality that evokes movement yet stillness. His photographs lead into realms of unknown beauty. He tries to go beyond the surface into the essence of his subject: the flowers exhale fragrance, a sunlit sunflower is a heliograph in every sense of the word, snow is myth, stones and rocks radiate their nature with tactile sensations. As an accomplished photographer and musician, Caponigro understands the use of technique to achieve artistic integrity. He strives for technical perfection, but he is not limited by technique. As a poet uses words, as a musician uses notes, he translates the worldand his feeling about it into his visual language. This monograph tells mo re about Paul Caponigro than words can. It gives us the privilege of visiting undiscovered worlds through the sensual events of this world. It makes us know what it is to be stone or wood through the intuitions of light. Through his work that rare thing happens: what the heart feels is revealed in aradiance of outward form." (Lotte Jacobi, quoted on the dustjacket). Very good in dustjacket. 30.00

Illustrated in black and white. Oblong 8vo, white cloth with dark grey lettering to spine, raised white lettering to front panel and spine of jacket. "'Eskimo Realities' is a hauntingly beautiful evocation of this ahrsh, windswept land and its enduring people. 'What exists,'writes Edmund Carpenter, 'the Eskimo themselves must struggle to bring int o existence. Theirs is a world which has to be conquered iwth each statement and act, each song and carving.' Faced daily with the most elemental struggle for survival, the Eskimo bring forth art -- in their ornaments, their amulets, their utensils, their weapons. For theirs is a world in which art is an integral part of survival, in which art and life are one. Even the most mundane tool becomes an art object, though not in any Western sense: Artto the Eskimo is an act, not an object; a ritual, not a possession." - fro m the dustjacket.

Large square 8vo, illustrated grey card covers, French flaps. BertrandCarrière is a photographer,born in Ottawa in 1957. “Sixty years after the raid at Dieppe, the photographer Bertrand Carrière brings 913 portraits of men to this beach in Upper Normandy in order to create an ephemeral photographic installation, condemned to be destroyed by the wind and the rising tide. Jubilee brings together hundred's of silent men's faces who have lent their image to those who have disappeared there, at Dieppe, in August 1942. This book gives full meaning to the symbolic gesture for memory and peace found in this work. Following this installation, Carrière realized a series of landscape photographs in this area. The Caux series presents a land of harsh and arid beauty, swept by the sea's violent winds, where the cliffs still rise up like an impenetrable fortress.” - from the back cover.

'My fascination about who we are and why, grew to a passion as I was seduced by photograph upon photograph. I was wooed by images of beautiful women and brokenheartred by the thought of their passing. I suffered vertigo, induced by a top-hatted man who say on the edge of Rideau Falls well over a hundred years ago. I dsicovered how cobble-stones were laiud, sewers were built, how fish were caught and timber was shipped I was overwhelmed by the Gothic grandeur of the first Parliament Buildings and intrigued by the faces of the thousands of nameless people who had gone before. Images of love, death, prejudice, war, solitude and happiness swirled by in a never-ending stream. I became a time traveller, a cultural voyeur, privy to the public and private libes that constitute the history of Canada'." - from the dustjacket. Very good in dustjacket.
