Surveys the eclectic oeuvre of influential American photographer Meatyard (1925-1972), presenting 108 full-page reproductions of works ranging from early documentary images and blurred or multiple-exposure photographs of landscapes and natural forms to surrealist-influenced depictions of grotesquely masked figures posed in mundane settings. Two extensive critical essays (supplemented with two homages to the artist) provide a biographical portrait of the Kentucky-based photographer and an explication of his complex work, discussing the personal, spiritual and aesthetic concerns underlying his innovative approach and sophisticated technical experiments.
