Synopsis:
William Gedney died in 1989 at the age of 56. He left behind a lifetime of photographic work, most of it unknown outside a few colleagues and curators, John Szarkowski, Lee Friedlander and Diane Arbus among them. These photographs - taken primarily in New York, San Francisco, Kentucky and India - are remarkable in their sympathetic and quietly sensual view of the world. Gedney's unobtrusive view reveals the beauty and mystery of individual lives. They illuminate the rare, lyrical vision of a photographer who, while living a reclusive personal life, recorded the lives of others with remarkable sensitivity and poignancy.

Summary: An extraordinary & stirring collection of photographs & writings by an enigmatic photographer whose work is published here for the first time. William Gedney died in 1989 at the age of fifty-six. He left behind a lifetime of photographic work, most of it unknown outside of a few colleagues & curators, including John Szarkowski, Lee Friedlander, & Diane Arbus. These photographs-taken primarily in New York, San Francisco, Kentucky, & India-are remarkable in their sympathetic & quietly sensual view of the world. They illuminate the rare, lyrical vision of a photographer who, while living a highly reclusive personal life, was able to record the lives of others with remarkable sensitivity & poignancy. From the commerce of the street outside his Brooklyn apartment window to the daily chores of unemployed coal miners, from the indolent lifestyle of hippies in Haight-Ashbury to the sacred rituals of Hindu worshippers, Gedney's unobtrusive view reveals the beauty & mystery of each individual life. Excerpts from Gedney's correspondence & notebooks help us discover this intensely private man who captured the people & place surround him with such striking clarity & intimacy.
