Fine copy in the original color-printed, stiff-card wrappers. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Physical description; 245 p. : ill. (some col.) ; 29 cm. Summary; This work, culled from the archives of The Mariners' Museum, features 100 historical photographs depicting the relationships of mariners with their vessels and the sea. Each photograph chronicles a fragment of the mariner's experience over the past 200 years shipbuilding, and the making of a wooden skiff, commercial fishing and whaling, amateur sailing, deep-sea diving, and naval encounters. In his introduction, Szarkowski shares his artistic rationale for selecting the particular images that appear in the book. The mix is eclectic - some are the work of photographers, while for others the photographer was a chronicler with a camera and an eye for composition. Richard Benson applies electronic and other techniques to the archival photographs. His essays unify the image and story in time and place, of historical, societal, and individual meaning.

Reseña del editor:

This fascinating book features 100 historical photographs selected, introduced, and explained by two preeminent figures in photography. Each photograph chronicles a fragment of the mariner's experience-shipbuilding, commercial fishing and whaling, deep-sea diving, naval encounters, and more. "Each of these beautiful, informative and idiosyncratic photographs must be savored. When juxtaposed with Benson's extended captions, however, they become focal points through which readers can assess the relationship of our humanity to the rationalizations of our seafaring...A moving testimonial to the exaltation and apprehension of human interaction with the sea. In fishermen's parlance, it's a keeper."-W. Jeffrey Bolster, New York Times Book Review "This diverse selection explores the human relationship to the sea in an engaging combination of historical text and fascinating photos...Each photo is arresting, whether for the story it tells or the beauty of the tones and forms within frame."-Cheryl Shugars, Philadelphia Inquirer "Offers a capsule overview of an unfamiliar, vanishing world." -Douglas Baiz, Chicago Tribune "The album allows the reader to relish the artistry of the visionaries behind the lenses. The lovely essay that accompanies each picture connects the reader to individual pieces of United States maritime history."-Susan L. Sweetnam, Christian Science Monitor

Contraportada:

This book depicts the relationships of mariners with their vessels and the sea. Each photograph chronicles a fragment of the mariner's experience over the past 200 years - shipbuilding, the making of a wooden skiff, commercial fishing and whaling, amateur sailing, deep-sea diving, naval encounters, and much more. In his introduction, John Szarkowski shares his artistic rationale for selecting the particular images that appear in this book. Benson's essays, which accompany the photographs, unify image and story in a vignette of time and place, of historical, societal, and individual meaning. This book is the catalogue for a traveling exhibition that will open in December 1997 at The Mariners' Museum in Newport News, Virginia.
