Old People Pictures of People Nicholas Nixon Photography
Fn soft cover copy from the 2nd printing, apparently unused. 126 pp. Illustrated introduction by Peter Galassi, 85 Photo reproductions, Chronology, and Bibliography. Exceptionally communicative B/W images from various Nixon informal portrait projects. Using an 8 x 10 view camera and contact printing Nixon produced images of surprisingly convincing naturalness and immediacy. A determined effort was made to preserve the beautiful detail of the original photographs by printing original size plates in tritone from negatives prepared by Richard Benson.
