Item Description: Du Page, Illinois: Gahlberg Gallery College Of Du Page, 2011. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 25 pages. Published in 2011. Retrospective Exhibition Catalog. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. None of the copies was sold commercially. There is no ISBN. The Exhibition Catalog is now rare. A brilliant production by Joseph D. Jachna: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover, as issued. Photographs by Joseph D. Jachna. Essay by Abigail Foerstner. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. The reproduction quality is exemplary in every respect: Its warmth, crispness, and rich tonal range. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the landmark retrospective exhibition of the same name held at the Gahlbery Gallery Du Page Illinois from October 12 through November 26, 2011. Presents "Beyond The Edges: Photographs by Joseph D. Jachna 1958-2010". A brilliant guide to the sublime art of one of the most remarkable photographers of our time. Throughout his long career, Jachna's desire to photograph Nature, particularly bodies of water, became a powerful instrument that connected him (and us) to the elemental richness of life, and just as important, to metaphorical self-reflection, the outer reality reflecting the inner life. As such, his images have reliably provided a much-needed calming, immersive, and meditative experience. This respite is otherwise impossible to find in contemporary photography, whose imagery is hectic, passive-aggressive, even violent. "Using contradictory surfaces, he creates scenes which at first glance seem simple but upon further investigation, complex images emerge, physically radiant and psychologically revealing" (Agathe Cancelliere). In other words, Jachna's exploration of physics, our natural state, is really and finally about metaphysics, our psychological, even philosophical, state of being. This is why despite their ostensible subject, nature, most of his prints are "Untitled", flouting the widely-accepted practice of identifying every landscape photograph with a specific place, date, and time. An absolute "must-have" title for Joseph D. Jachna collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few copies of the Exhibition Catalog still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: None of the copies was sold commercially. A rare copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with duotone and color plates. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine copy.

The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. There is no ISBN. The Exhibition Catalog is now scarce.

Jachna's "Or Water Is: A Photographic Meditation". Mysterious yet luminous photographs of bodies of water. "For a decade between the late 1950's and the late 1960's, his desire to photograph water in its many states became a powerful metaphorical tool connecting him, and us, to the elemental richness of life. These photographs provide a calming and meditative experience" (Publisher's blurb). What water is: A metaphor for tranquillity and majesty, for reflection and action. An absolute "must-have" title for Joseph D. Jachna collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Joseph D. Jachna.

Item Description: Chicago, IL: Stephen Daiter Gallery, 2012. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 75 pages. Published in 2012. Retrospective Exhibition Catalog. The single best book on the photographic art of Joseph D. Jachna. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. None of the copies was sold commercially. The Exhibition Catalog is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Joseph D. Jachna and Adam Holtzman: Oversize-volume format. Gray cloth boards with photographic reproduction pasted in front and metallic-silver titles embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Joseph D. Jachna. Essay by Agathe Cancelliere. Invaluable List of Plates appended at the end. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. The reproduction quality is exemplary in every respect: Its warmth, crispness, and rich tonal range. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the landmark retrospective exhibition of the same name held at the Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago in 2012. Presents Joseph D. Jachna's "Surface Contradictions 1958-1971". A loving, indispensable guide to the sublime art of one of the most remarkable photographers of our time. This is the second (and final) volume published by Stephen Daiter on Jachna's oeuvre, preceded by "Or Water Is" (2000), published twelve years ago. As such, it is THE only major volume published by the photographer in his lifetime (Joseph D. Jachna died in 2016). Throughout his long career, Jachna's desire to photograph Nature, particularly bodies of water, became a powerful instrument that connected him (and us) to the elemental richness of life, and just as important, to metaphorical self-reflection, the outer reality reflecting the inner life. As such, his images have reliably provided a much-needed calming, immersive, and meditative experience. This respite is otherwise impossible to find in contemporary photography, whose imagery is hectic, passive-aggressive, even violent. What does the rather provocative title mean? "Rough/Smooth; Wet/Dry; Matte/Lustre; Luminous/Dark; Teeming/Empty; Opaque/Transparent. These contrasts define Jachna's images. Using contradictory surfaces, he creates scenes which at first glance seem simple but upon further investigation, complex images emerge, physically radiant and psychologically revealing" (Agathe Cancelliere). In other words, Jachna's exploration of physics, our natural state, is really and finally about metaphysics, our psychological, even philosophical, state of being. This is why despite their ostensible subject, nature, most of his prints are "Untitled", flouting the widely-accepted practice of identifying every landscape photograph with a specific place, date, and time. An absolute "must-have" title for Joseph D. Jachna collectors. This title is a late-modern art photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Exhibition Catalog available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: None of the copies was sold commercially. The only other copy available online is also from us. A rare copy thus. 56 plates. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JOSEPH D. JACHNA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0985952911. no. Bookseller Inventory # 21156
