About this Item

47 p. Fine color and black-and-white photographs. "The power of Purcell's compelling photographs lies in their ability to evoke memory and create illusion. Complex, multi-faceted, magical, her work blends portraits of men and women with images of plants and animals to form a world on the edge of reality"--Janet Malcolm, The New Yorker. Purcell uses Polaroid Land films in inventive ways. Red cloth hardcover, fine; dust jacket, not price-clipped, fine but for a teeny-tiny amount of rubbing at the edges. Oversize, may require extra postage. Bookseller Inventory # 112214RP
