Quillan Coll 19th-Non Returnbl

Jill Quaha, Author, Ben Lisfon, Photographer Quillan Co. $100 (145p) ISBN 978-0-933920-39-2
Reproduced one to a page in this compact, limited edition volume, these 70 photographs were assembled, according to collector Quasha, as ``a comment--spontaneous, rapid, fluid, and supple--on photography and its past.'' Identified only by date and photographer, the pictures achieve a remarkably powerful effect--individually and as a collection. Still lifes, portraits, wide-angled panoramas, caught moments and studies of form and movement display the work of 70 photographers, including Brassai, Paul Strand and Cindy Sherman, from 1839 to 1980. In Quasha's deft selection and presentation, the photographs, purchased for the international Quillan? company, eloquently display the photographer's and collector's art. (Sept.)
