About this Item

Dust Jacket Condition: As New. Unpaginated, preface, Introduction by David A. Jay; White: The 42 Duotone Plates; list of plates, b&w map of the cyclades islands of Greece, technical information. First Edition, 1991. Inscribed By Howard Bond on Half-Title. "Photography historian Helmut Gernsheim is an author of numerous books and articles, including the monumental History of Photography 1685-1914, which has recently been expanded and published in three volumes. The Gernsheim Collection, housed mainly at the Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas, Austin, contains over 36,000 photographs, including the earliest surviving photographic image. After becoming acquainted with Howard Bond and his photographs, he wrote: "I can hardly describe the surprise and delight I felt on seeing, at the 1990 FotoFest in Houston, Howard Bond's wonderful abstractions of old Greek churches on various Cyclades Islands. With sunlight and shade, he created out of a few lines powerful geometric forms, straight and curved, and very black and white forms that seem very simple and yet are highly sophisticated . I love Howard Bond's images just because they don't represent anything recognizable. They open up a new world- the world of abstract forms and shapes, sections of white granulated plaster surrounded by deep grays and blacks, and hence more vivid." from the jacket flap. Not Price Clipped. Pristine, no wear. Clean, tight and strong binding with no underlining, highlighting or marginalia. Grey cloth with blind-stamped silver title to front board and spine.

About this title

Synopsis:

A photographer since 1945, Howard Bond was drawn to the whitewashed buildings and strong Mediterranean light of the Cyclades Islands and began photographing them in earnest in 1980. This beautifully printed book contains forty-two magnificent images that capture the texture and feeling of a beloved place. Photo historian Helmut Gernsheim writes, "I can hardly describe the surprise and delight I felt on seeing Howard Bond's wonderful abstractions of old Greek churches on various Cycladic Islands. With sunlight and shade, he created out of a few lines powerful geometric forms, straight and curved, and very black and white forms that seem simple and yet are highly sophisticated."
