(PICKER, Fred). Fred Picker. (Garden City, N.Y.) : American Phootographic Book Publishing Company, Inc., (1979). Pp (110). Illustrated. 4to, black cloth, white lettering to spine. "This book is published to accompany an exhibition at the Prakapas Gallery, New York, in June 1979. The photographs weremade between 1972 and 1979. | (from copyright page). "We still see nature as a healing and mmaterial deity, as a source of stable values in a fragmentary world; whether this is an illusion or not, or to what degree, is irrelevant in the presence of these photographs. They have a mutual calm, a long,brilliant, curved line that brings to mind the cantilena of a Bach slow mo vement, unrepeated from end to end, confined, yet flowing within the horizontals of the musical staff. This calm, this balance, this sense of the original beauty of air and soil and rock and ice and salt water is the central theme of Fred Oicker's photographs. Contemplation of his images rewards us with a quiet lingering resonance." (by Ben Meadow, on the dj flap). Very good in dustjacket. Signed without inscription by the photographer, Fred Picker. 50.00
