Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel's enormously influential 1977 volume of found institutional photographs…  
  
 
  
Book Description 
  
In 1977 photographers Larry Sultan and Mike Mandel sifted through thousands of photographs in the files of the Bechtel Corporation, the Beverly Hills Police Department, the Jet Propulsion Laboratories, the U.S. Department of the Interior, Stanford Research Institute and a hundred other corporations, American government agencies, and educational, medical and technical institutions. They were looking for photographs that were made and used as transparent documents and purely objective instruments--as evidence, in short. Selecting 50 of the best, they printed these images with the care you would expect to find in a high-quality art photography book, publishing them in a simple, limited-edition volume titled Evidence. The concept for the book was clear: select photographs intended to be used as objective evidence and show that it is never that simple.~Now an undisputed classic in the photo world, considered a seminal harbinger of conceptual photography, Evidence is nearly impossible to find. This new edition is being published in recognition of the project's continued relevance, and will contain a facsimile copy of the original book plus a newly commissioned scholarly essay by Sandra Phillips of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Additionally, this edition will include a new spread of images and a group of black-and-white illustrations selected by the artists from an archive of photographs that were not included in the original book. ...a small and simple book that reveals the vast gulf separating what we actually see from what we think we see. --Shelley Rice~Evidential images of the world, throw off your chains and dance! --David Levi Strauss Essays by Sandra Philips and Robert Forth. Clothbound, 9.75 x 9 in./92 pgs / 0 color 25 BW61 duotone 0 ~ Item D20211
