Holtzman, Avi. With essays by Frits Gierstberg and William L. Fox.
The War Trilogy. [Autograph Copy].
Reno, Nevada Museum of Art, 1997. BRAND NEW. Virgin copy, not yet traded. Large oblong 8vo. Pp. 47. Photographic work. With 25 full-page colour plates (inc. cover), and 53 thumbnail halftone images. Pictorial stiff wrappers.
¶ ~ Autograph copy, signed by the artist. First edition. Exhibition catalogue, published to coincide with the first exhibition of 'The War Trilogy' in its North American and European tour between 1997 and 2000. With an introduction by Steven S. High, Director of the Nevada Museum of Art, Reno, and two essays: 'No Neutral Ground: The Political Landscapes of Avi Holtzman,' by Frits Gierstberg, Curator at the National Institute for Photography in the Netherlands, and 'Frames of Conflict,' by William L. Fox, poet and arts writer based in LA, California. As the work of some of the New Topographic photographers in America of the 70s, Holtzman's uninflected long look at the Israeli landscape tends to neutralize the mythic and high romantic connotations of 'the holy land', forcing the viewer to confront the insidious power of politics over nature and history over beauty. It is a powerful, general condemnation of the war's consequences - the complete militarization of the land. Holtzman's camera, charting the geography of destruction, has captured a painful insight into how the very land itself has become a victim of war. The 53 photographs of 'The War Trilogy' consist the most in-depth single artist representation in the Altered Landscape Collection, a premier repository for contemporary photographs on the environment. 'We place Holtzman's work next to that of other photographers in the collection - the 'Bravo 20' photographs by [Richard] Misrach, the 'Nuclear Landscapes' of Peter Goin, and Lewis Baltz's deadpan coverage of the rural West's transformation into rootless suburbia - and it's clear that we need the view through all these different frames in order to understand where we live.' - William L. Fox.
