This publication features thirty-eight Ruscha plates and an essay that traces the evolution of the artistâs thinking about his photographs initially as the means to the end of his self-published photobooks and eventually as works of art in and of themselves. Virginia Heckert contextualizes Ruschaâs photographs within the history of photographic documentation of vernacular architecture, using examples by such important photographers as Carleton Watkins, EugÃ¨ne Atget, and Walker Evans, as well as contemporary photographers, many of whom have acknowledged Ruscha as an influence in their own depiction of the built environment.
Ed Ruscha and âSome Los Angeles Apartmentsâ accompanies an exhibition titled In Focus: Ed Ruscha, on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum from April 9 to September 29, 2013.
About: Los Angelesâbased contemporary artist Ed Ruscha is celebrated for his paintings, drawings, prints, and artistâs books, receiving widespread critical acclaim for more than half a century.
