The first publication dedicated to Rose Mandel, a pioneering woman in photography, introduces her remarkable, if often overlooked, body of work to a wider audience. Including her important sequence ''The Errand of the Eye,'' this book presents the sensitivity and clarity of Mandel's vision. These photographs are the result of a highly refined sense of craftsmanship and a complex understanding of psychology and abstract expressionism that caused Mandel to be described as ''a painter with a camera.'' The first monograph on the artist, this volume features an enlightening overview of Mandel's life and work, along with an illustrated chronology and exhibition history. Hardcover, 128 pages.
