W. Eugene Smith His Photographs and Notes

Me. Hoffman / W. Eugene Smith

Availability: Out of stock

The book begins with a three-page chronology of Smith's life from 1918 through 1969. (Smith died October 15, 1978.) Although brief, it covers his awards, achievements and major assignments. The photographs are not arranged in strict chronological order, however, but in an "episodic" form as a series of portfolios
Smith writes: "Photographs related to the photographic - essay are presented here as individual works, as excerpts from the essays, presented in portfolio form. There is no intention to offer a thorough journalistic approach to the subjects involved." Smith was a meticulous and masterful printer. Photoengraving, of course, cannot approach the quality of the original print, but Aperture did a remarkably fine job. I own an original print of "Jazz" and the reproduction compares very well except for the depth of the blacks. The book concludes with a fascinating biographical essay by Lincoln Kirstein and an extensive bibliography.
