Edward Hopper & Company: Hopper's Influence on Photography by Jeffrey Fraenkel; published by the Fraenkel Gallery, April 1. (U.K. link)
According to the product description, Geoff Dyer said that Edward Hopper "could claim to be the most influential American photographer of the twentieth century—even though he didn't take any photographs."
But didn't Hopper in fact take photographs—to paint from?* (It's been since high school that I studied Hopper.)
The subtitle is a misnomer; these are photo essays, which (notwithstanding being the same word) is something very different from "essays." The book contains nine photo essays, each of which includes 15 to 20 photographs.
The book inspired a recent article over at the world's best photography magazine.
Featured Comment by Farhiz Karanjawala: "The Whitney Museum of American Art has probably the largest collection of Hopper works including many of his preliminary studies. He was known to sit in his car and sketch a scene making detailed notes about colour and light in studies for 'Rooms for Tourists, 1945,' 'Summertime, 1943,' 'Morning Sun, 1952,' 'Office at Night, 1940' and others. The New York Times some issues back had an article on Hopper's Cape Cod. If you missed it, it's worth a look."
