Pirkle Jones: California Photographs, 1935-1982
by Tim B. Wride
Publisher's Description
"This unprecedented publication provides insight into the life and work of Pirkle Jones. Rarely has an artist fused poetic intuition and the photographic document in a stronger or more cohesive fashion. Valuing content above all, Jones's sensibility is to inform through the use of the quality black and white images as a sophisticated tool. The book includes his politically controversial and widely exhibited documentation of top leaders in the Black Panther movement, photographs from his photo essay on the damming of the Berryessa Valley, on which he collaborated with Dorothea Lange, and his most remarkable single images."-the publisher.
