ELLSWORTH KELLY: PHOTOGRAPHS. Matthew Marks Gallery, New York, 2016. Published in association with Aperture Foundation, Inc., New York, 92 pp. 29 x 26 cm. ISBN 9781597113809 In English.
Publisher's description: Ellsworth Kelly is credited with inventing a new kind of painting, one inspired by nature but also by the chance compositions he encountered in the world. He started taking photographs in 1950, using a borrowed Leica to "make notations of things I had seen and subjects I had been drawing." Unlike his sketches and collages, the photographs were not part of his process of making a painting or sculpture; they were simply a record of his vision. As such, they convey his enthusiasm for the visible world around him -- the compositional possibilities to be found in a barn roof, for example, or a tree branch. Featuring photographs spanning four decades, this is the first book ever published on Kelly's photography, and the artist was closely involved in all aspects of its making. In the statement that begins the book, he writes, "When you look at the world, everything is separate -- each thing is in its own space, has its own uniqueness. When I take photographs, I want somehow to capture that."
