Abstract:

"This monograph presents the often-overlooked photographic work of Charles Sheeler. It opens with his Cubist-inspired architectural images of the 1910s, moves on to the highly abstract nude studies and dramatic New York City views from around 1920, and culminates in the series devoted to the Ford Motor Company's River Rouge plant in 1927, a project that established modern industrial iconography. Also featured are his stunning images of the Chartres cathedral done in 1929 and images of American industry made for Fortune magazine in 1939. Freely experimenting with the possibilities of the medium, Sheeler paved the way for other innovative photographers such as Walker Evans. This volume also investigates the links between the photographer and the painter Charles Sheeler - as he employed both media in the process of visual creation."--Jacket.
