Meta Photographs

Richard Gordon

1978

Chimaera Press

Richard Gordon has used the camera, a Leica, to make a book about contemporary photography that is a timely and valuable contribution to the medium. Meta Photographs is a book of photographs fully felt, seen, and constructed as a related series. The montage that results is a function of systematically produced relations between the images. The possibility and potential for this kind of photography is implicit in the medium which, as Walker Evans pointed up by word and deed, is the most literary of the visual arts. —Alex Sweetman
