This is a 50-year retrospective of the work of American photographer Perkis, who is professor emeritus at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, as well as the author of Teaching Photography, Notes Assembled. Cataloging some 125 black-and-white photographs in a variety of locales, including Turkey, Mexico, New York City, and upstate New York, the book also comprises several short essays and an interview with the author. In addition, it is tied into an exhibit showing this spring at the Alan Klotz Gallery in New York City. It is difficult to generalize about the subject matter of the photographs, since it is so varied (e.g., farm landscapes, the bustling of the inner city, and people in their environments) and covers such a long time period. While there are other books available that have photographs by Perkis, they are not as comprehensive or as recent as this one. Recommended for academic and public collections where photography is studied.
