Gathering Calm
Photographs: 1994-2004
Bill Schwab
foreward by Nancy Sojka - Graphic Arts Curator, DIA

"Bill Schwab knows landscapes ヨ and indeed, itメs evident that he loves them. His methodology is both intuitive and analytical. Through his experience of the outdoors ヨ learning about weather conditions, light, and the natural characteristics of a geography ヨ he has developed a sense, not necessarily of knowing what to expect but rather of knowing about what to remain vigilant."

"Often, his landscapes are of a splendor that can only be described as poetic. At other times, the subjects are simpler yet equally poignant and range from the humorous to the mysterious..." -from the foreword by Nancy Sojka - Curator Graphic Arts, Detroit Institute of Arts

Ruth Bernhard
Between Art & Life
Margaretta K. Mitchell

Hailed by Ansel Adams as "the greatest photographer of the nude," Ruth Bernhard is an icon in the photographic world. As told by Ruth in countless conversations with close friend and biographer Margaretta Mitchell, this thoughtful, illustrated memoir is a true tribute to the legendary artist. Reminiscent of a personal scrapbook, the engaging text is adorned with an abundance of fascinating memorabilia and nostalgic snapshots. Woven throughout is correspondence between Ruth and her mentor Edward Weston, as well as interviews with friends, colleagues, students, and her long-time printer. Also included is a special section entitled "Workshop," which surveys Ruth's acclaimed teaching methods. Coinciding with an exhibition in honor of Ruth's 95th birthday, Ruth Bernhard: Between Life and Art is a beautiful celebration of an extraordinary woman.

Margaretta Mitchell, author of the biographical essay in Ruth Bernhard: The Eternal Body, is herself a dedicated photographer whose work is widely exhibited. Her articles on photography have appeared in numerous magazines. She lives in Berkeley, California.
