Rudy Burckhardt

By Burckhardt, Rudy; Phillip Lopate; Vincent Katz

New York: Abrams, 2004. Hardcover. First edition. Fine clothbound hardcover in a Fine dust jacket, protected by a mylar cover. No remainder mark. BOOKS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY, WRAPPED IN PADDING, IN A BOX. "One of the great New York street photographers, Rudolph (Rudy) Burckhardt (1914-1999) was an astonishingly versatile artist, working not only as a photographer but also as a filmmaker and a painter. Yet his work has remained largely unknown outside a small circle of enthusiasts. Now, with this comprehensive monograph, the full range and brilliance of Burckhardt's photography is revealed: not only his telling street scenes, which capture the energy and chaotic beauty of the city, and his penetrating portraits of artists in their studios, but also his views of European cities, studies of children and the female nude, and views of the natural world." Photographs by Rudy Burckhardt; essays by Phillip Lopate and Vincent Katz. 224 pages; 278 duo-toned b&w plates; 10.5 x 12 inches.
