Overview

One of the great New York street photographers, Rudolph (Rudy) Burckhardt (1914-1999) was an astonishingly versatile artist, working not only as a photographer but also as a filmmaker and a painter. Yet his work has remained largely unknown outside a small circle of enthusiasts. Now, with this comprehensive monograph, the full range and brilliance of Burckhardt's photography is revealed: not only his telling street scenes, which capture the energy and chaotic beauty of the city, and his penetrating portraits of artists in their studios, but also his views of European cities, studies of children and the female nude, and views of the natural world.With a thoughtful text by the well-known essayist and novelist Phillip Lopate, this volume dedicated to the multitalented Burckhardt, whom poet John Ashbery hailed as "a subterranean monument," will be a revelation to anyone with a serious interest in contemporary culture-and a feast for the eyes of anyone who loves great photography. Author Bio: Phillip Lopate is a highly regarded novelist, poet, and essayist. He has published several collections of his essays in book form, and his work has also appeared in journals such as the Paris Review. He lives in Brooklyn, New York. Vincent Katz, poet and art critic, was part of the photographer's circle from childhood. He contributed an essay to the catalogue for the 1998 Burckhardt retrospective in Valencia, Spain. He lives in New York City.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Several monographs have been published on Swiss-born photographer/filmmaker Rudy Burckhardt (1914-99), but few remain in print, which makes this retrospective especially welcome. Novelist Lopate considers Burckhardt's aesthetic, his subject matter, and with special sensitivity his personal life; Lopate was a close friend, and he describes, quite wonderfully, Burckhardt's manners, voice, and movements. Lopate also succeeds in drawing insightful comparisons to the work of Burckhardt's photographer contemporaries. Two hundred black-and-white images are included, ranging from New York street scenes to tabletop still lifes to portraits and streetscapes taken in Europe, the Caribbean, and the American South. The book does a wonderful job of showing the range and quality of his still photography, though it does lack examples of his film work, which Burckhardt considered his greatest accomplishment. Recommended for all libraries. Michael Dashkin, PricewaterhouseCoopers, New York Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
