Having seen the panoramic night work (done with a rare Cirkut
rotational panorama camera) of Chris Faust
previously, I was curious to see just what format
his new book would take. I am pleased to announce that the review copy I recently received from the Univ. of Minnesota Press
is a beautifully designed 9x15 (Horizontal) monograph, with an introduction by Joan Rothfuss of the Walker Art Center
. Chris braves the rough Minnesota winters to photograph scenes that recall Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Hopper (our favorite NPr who did not use
a camera) - with a little bit of 'snow-noir' thrown in for good measure.
One of our favorite soundbites, from the Photographer's Notes in the book, where Chris makes the point: "To make a photograph is still magical and soulful, very much like making Music."
The book is simply titled "Nocturnes" (catchy, no?) and is available thru The Nocturnes link to Amazon
