Library Journal - Library Journal
This celebration of blurred and out-of-focus images from a medium known for its documentary precision and clarity presents well-reproduced works of 12 contemporary photographers, including familiar artists like Klein, Meatyard, Michals, and Samaras, and work by several new names including the compelling surreal photographs of Francesca Woodman (1958-1981). In separate essays, Eugenia Parry Janis analyzes 19th-century precedents (largely unintentional and unavoidable) of such blurring, while Max Kozloff contributes a thought-provoking discussion of the nature of time as we experience it and as the camera actually records it. Included is complete information on each photograph and photographer appearing in the Walker Art Center exhibit this book accompanies. Recommended for art and photohistory collections.-- Kathleen Collins, Library of Congress
