Print, book and enclosures in Mint condition.From the publisher: "Water's Edge presents for the first time in a single volume what many consider to be Harry Callahan's greatest achievement in photography -- the Beach Series. From 1941 to [the 1970s], from the shores of Lake Michigan to the dunes of Cape Cod, Callahan has continually returned to this theme. First influenced by Ansel Adams, and later nourished by the encouragement of Moholy-Nagy and Edward Steichen, Callahan's Beach Series reveals a strength and clarity of design and form that are uniquely his own. With a reverential respect toward place, he uses the elements of the landscape -- the ethereal light of the shore, the serene expanses of space, the forms shaped by ocean and wind -- to create an extraordinary series of photographs which is contemporary yet timeless. A.R. Ammon's introductory poem, "Corsons Inlet," evokes a sense of the beach complementary to Callahan's own vision, and in the afterword, Callahan himself writes of the significance of the Beach Series in his photographic oeuvre."
