Title: More (uncorrected proof)



Photographer: Accra Shepp
Author: Austin Clarke
Publisher: <p>Amistad (HarperCollins)</p>
Designer: mary schuck

 

Image Title: untitled 1996 (p.29 from the artist's book 'Atlas')
Photo Genre: Alternative process (photo emulsion on leaf)
Book Genre: Novel
Notes:

This is the uncorrected proof of Clarke's novel. In the final, published version, Accra Shepp's portrait (exposed on a leaf painted with liquid photo emulsion) is cropped for a tighter view (click on Point of Interest, at upper right). The resulting design is more forceful but compromises the object-like quiality that makes Shepp's image so graceful and evocative.
