Synopsis: 4to. Unpaginated with introduction by Barbara Bullock, b&w Plates, acknowledgments by Dave Bohn. The Scrimshaw Press, Publication No. 8: First Edition, 1971. Grey cloth with tipped-in photograph and black lettering on front board, and black lettering to spine. ``Wynn Bullock (1902-1975) was an American photographer, who in 70's frustrated by the limitations of color printing technology, returned to making black-and-white photographs, continuing to expand his vision to create innovative images that reflected his philosophical nature. Differentiating what he termed 'reality', the visible and the known, from 'existence', the underlying truth of things, he was ceaseless in his attempts to expand his own faculties of perception and understanding so he could come ever closer in his experiences to the essence of things. Finding the means to more fully evoke that essence was also a key part of his quest.[7] Although he included several different alternative processes (extremely long time exposures, multiple images, up-side-down and negative printing) in his repertoire of techniques, each was always used in the service of symbolizing new ways of relating to and knowing the world. In the early 70s, Bullock started on a new leg of his creative journey, one that he found completely absorbing and deeply satisfying but which was cut short by incurable cancer. Many of his photographs from that period reveal light emanating from within the heart of things, life glowing and pulsing with energy and vitality. Other photographs are of natural forms that depict or suggest universal human qualities, humanity "deeply embedded in" and re-united with nature."
