West Islip: ULAE Inc., 1982. 1st Edition. Large folio, publisher's white cloth, spine and upper board stamped in silver, original white cloth slipcase.
70 full-page black-and-white photos of New York by artist Rauschenberg, with shots of buildings, interiors, people and street scenes, taken over the course of 30 years: "We are seldom so alert to the textures of rubber, metal, paper, glass, plastic, and concrete as we are when Rauschenberg points them out to us with the light that rakes the city's sidewalks, alleys, and vacant lots" (from the preface by curator and art historian Colta Ives). Part of a larger project devoted to American cities, including Charletson, Boston, Baltimore, Los Angeles and Sanibel Island, Florida (though only Boston saw publication as a separate volume). Light soiling to slipcase. Near fine. Item #5143
