Lewis Baltz WORKS
by Lewis Baltz
Limited to 1,100 copies each signed and numbered by Lewis Baltz, this edition contains ten hardback, linen bound volumes, housed in an embossed slipcase.
WORKS celebrates Lewis Baltz’s indelible influence on the development of contemporary photography and contains reissues of Baltz’s most significant books, many of which are now collectible rarities, as well as four as yet unpublished projects. Each of the books has been crafted in close collaboration with Baltz, who oversaw each stage of production with Gerhard Steidl. From scanning of the vintage prints, to book design, selection of paper and binding materials, pre-press and printing, Baltz has shaped the form and aesthetic of these publications. Printed in luminous quadratone, WORKS is a testament to the importance of the book as a primary medium in Baltz’s practice.
“Baltz’s work exemplifies the ways in which photography, beginning some four decades ago, started to loose the bonds of its isolation within its own segregated history and aesthetics and began to take its place as an equal among other media.” Adam D. Weinberg, Alice Pratt Brown Director, Whitney Museum of American Art.
