What makes one photograph important to its maker, while another becomes the public's choice? Exploring this question, PHOTOGRAPHER'S DIALOGUE presents the "Popular" & "Preferred" images of 30 American photographers, including Judy Dater, Elliot Erwitt, Robert Fichter, Sheila Metzner, Duane Michals, Arnold Newman, Joyce Tenneson, George Tice, Jerry Uelsmann & Edward Weston. "PHOTOGRAPHER'S DIALOGUE is a splendid catalog of a unique exhibition..." says eminent photographer Beaumont Newhall. "As a course in self-growth for photographers, & as a study for those with a more distant view of the medium who want to learn more about its charms, PHOTOGRAPHER'S DIALOGUE succeeds," extols PTN Publishing's George Schaub. The introduction by A. D. Coleman, noted media critic & author, explores the phenomena of expression & communication in art. In separate chapters the artists individually: define photography; debate the relationship between photography & reality; reveal if they ever try to promote a particular image; & describe their audience. The book documents the exhibit, "Photographer's Dialogue," which premiered at Florida's Boca Raton Museum of Art in October 1989. The exhibition will travel to various U. S. museums in 1991 & 1992.
