Annotations of Ambiguity

Judith Turner, Author, Rizzoli, Author Rizzoli International Publications $29.95 (116p) ISBN 978-0-8478-0823-6
Turner isolates and frames fragments of buildings to produce elegant compositions that at times seem like abstractions, at times recognizable objects. The many variations possible on a given theme, as in the ""Columns'' section, emphasize the grace that proportion can give a structure. ``The Pale Series'' offers delicate tonal variations, ``The Dark Series'' includes sharp contrasts and ``Early Work'' features grainy stone. Other sections include ``Five Architects'' (the title of her previous book that examined the work of Peter Eisenman, Michael Graves, Charles Gwathmey, John Hejduk and Richard Meier), ``Jacob K. Javits Convention Center,'' ``White City'' and ``Corporate Headquarters.'' This book commemorates a major retrospective of Turner's work that took place in Tokyo last year; it also serves to demonstrate that Turner is a photographer who is technically astute and has an eye that captures fragments in arresting ways.
