NEW COLOR/ NEW WORK: EIGHTEEN PHOTOGRAPHIC ESSAYS by Sally Eauclaire
Abbeville Press, 1984, First edition, 276 pp., 9 1/2" X 10", Hardcover
"Guiding New Color/New Work was the premise that because photography propates images in a quantity and with a speed unknown to any other medium, ideas are best realized in an extended series. Often the full value or impact of a photographer's work depends upon such a context. Accordingly, these portfolios provide readers with a perception of the relationship of each image to others produced during the same period, and make it possible to include photographs that function well as part of a group but less will in isolation. Most important, seeing an extensive body of work defuses speculation that single photographs might be the result of serendipity rather than an intentional summation of the photographer's ideas about life and art."
