Product Description

Synopsis

Richard Misrach, one of todays most prolific contemporary masters, is internationally renowned for his carefully considered, beautifully rendered epic works. In "On the Beach", a lavishly produced, oversized monograph that features the long-awaited publication of this spectacular series, Misrach hones in on our delicate relationship to the sea. Light, color, and form are crucial components in Misrachs explorations of difficult subjects. In this body of work he uses a gorgeous, slowly shifting color palette gleaned from changes in depth and tide; abstract patterns of waves and rippling water, and beaches both empty and cluttered. Throughout the series, Misrach carefully balances the minutiae of human gesture against the massive scale of the sea. In some images, a lone figure floats in a liquid field of brilliant turquoiseor in others, lies beached and partially buried.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lavish, beautiful special book 27 Oct 2007
By Dan Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
'On the Beach' rivals 99% of art books as a production, which is a strong enough feat to deserve 5 stars. But the series itself is so good that when presented in this format, the book is likely to be one of the best of this decade... or any. Larger than any books at a print-standard 16x20 inches, the book is massive and beautifuly produced; for 5% of the price of the large format Taschen series, it delivers a far superior experience. 'On the Beach' takes you from coast to coast, reflecting on man's relationship to the ocean. After one trip through its pages, you can really feel a statement on how truly vast the earth is; how we exist as ants in this endless universe. I've never been a huge fan of Misrach's before, but something special has been made here: the combination of a grand, beautiful, thoughtful series produced into a huge-format book worthy of a museum director's coffee table. It won't be any surprise to me when it wins awards; it's the best book of the year... or last year. Buy it before it's gone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Fine 23 Dec 2007
By S. G. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I purchased the book after seeing an exhibition of this work at The Art Institute of Chicago. This book does a fine job of capturing the impact of the exhibition. The images are stunning and perfectly supported by the design and scale of this book. Well worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars L.A.R.G.E. 3 Jan 2008
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
this is a focused work of exceptional calibre. Its presentation is immaculate, and the topic is the beach... still life's or life frozen, the water mesmerizes, the people are sometimes mystifying, sometimes inconsequential, mostly always only a part of a whole much larger. The colours and the clarity of his shots are beautiful. Just make sure you have room for this work!

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing 7 Jan 2008
By Squirrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The large format of the images is really strinking. The book was much larger than I expected when I ordered it. I wonder if the prints would be as moving if they were smaller. But the size is part of the work so I guess that question might not matter. I imagine these images would be great alone on a wall as well. The images gave me sense of how limitless our universe is around us. We find things in life to ground us or anchor us but really we are just floating around in the ether.
