Coinciding with the release of California, Aperture is pleased to present this limited edition box set by John Chiara. The set includes a signed, limited edition copy of California accompanied by a unique direct Ilfochrome print, presented in a specially designed clamshell box. *Collectors will be presented with all the images available and can select their print by emailing [email protected] prior to purchase. Please note that your order will not ship until a print is chosen.
John Chiara creates his own cameras and chemical processes, in order to make unique photographs that use the direct exposure of light onto reversal film and paper. Each resulting photograph is a singular, luminous object. This highly anticipated first book includes the surreal and thrilling landscape and architectural images for which the artist has become known. John Chiara: California features images taken in the artist’s hometown of San Francisco and other locations along the Pacific Coast. An essay by Virginia Heckert situates Chiara’s work in the landscape tradition of the American West and discusses this process-driven work.
