New American photography
by Kathleen McCarthy Gauss
Publisher's Description
This stunningly reproduced anthology of contemporary photography represents seven one-person exhibits held at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art beginning in the fall of 1983. Curator Kathleen McCarthy Gauss has chosen a diverse selection of work by Susan Rankaitis (monoprints that include photo imagery), Richard Misrach (recent desert photographs), Mark Klett (documentary photographs of the Southwest), Wendy MacNeil (family portraits), John Pfahl (color landscapes that include power plants), Barbara Kruger (graphic images from the public domain combined with terse social commentary), and Eileen Cowin (directed photographs taken of domestic and personal relationships). Essays by Gauss on each of the photographers lend insight to individual images and put the different works into an historical context.
