About This Image
Stanford University Press, Stanford, CA, 2004. Cloth over boards. With dust jacket. 94 pages. The 60 b&w plates in this large-format book are portraits created between 1968 and 2003. Straightforward and sensitive to the range of the human condition, Margo Davis's black-and-white portraits have been a mainstay of American photography for decades. A former teacher at the Ansel Adams Yosemite Workshops, Davis' images capture their subjects unsentimentally yet with palpable affection and an emphasis on place and context. This volume collects 40 years of her best work, with 60 superbly reproduced plates. The result is an exceptional sharpness of detail and richness of tonality to rival the originals. Generally in near mint condition with two closed tears on the dust jacket.
