Barbara Bosworth: The Heavens

Text by Margot Anne Kelley.

Featured image is reproduced from 'Barbara Bosworth: The Heavens.'

A follow-up to her successful 2015 book The Meadow, this project focuses on Boston-based photographer Barbara Bosworth's (born 1953) images of the moon, sun and sky. Made over the past several years with an 8x10 camera, the star images are hour-long exposures with the camera mounted on a clock drive so that the stars are rendered as dots instead of streaks. The sun and moon images are made with a telescope attached to Bosworth's camera.

Speaking of her inspiration for these series, Bosworth writes: "Every clear night of the summer my father would go out for a walk to look at the night sky. Many nights I would join him. We knew the North Star, and the Big Bear, but the rest became our own. At times we stood still for an hour or more to watch for shooting stars. We had no agenda. It was all about amazement at a sky full of stars. With this sense of wonder, I began making photographs of the Heavens. In these days of the Hubble Telescope and its spectacular imagery from deep space, I wanted a reminder of the mystery of our own night sky."

The book also includes facsimile editions of three artist's books that Bosworth has made as a nod to Galileo's 17th-century publications in which he first observed the skies through a telescope.

Hollywood Reporter

Bill Shapiro

Manages to feel as intimate as a diary peek. Mark’s strength as a documentary photographer — her ability to embed in the uneasy, quickly shifting worlds of heroin users, psychiatric patients and white supremacists — served her well when it came to capturing the flickering emotional undercurrents and surreal aspects of life

Air Mail

Julia Vitale

Mary Ellen Mark’s gritty photographs evoke the resilience and spirit of youth.

Dazed

Thomas Gorton

‘The Book Of Everything’ is a comprehensive collection of Mark’s unflinching documentary of life and people as they really are...Mary Ellen was such an incredible documentarian of the whole world, but she helped her viewers understand fringe America.

Vogue

Bill Shapiro

Mary Ellen Mark made the kind of pictures that stung the heart and surprised the eye [...] she documented people on the outskirts of society—sex workers, street kids, cross-dressing beauty pageant contestants, patients in a women’s psychiatric ward—creating memorable images that managed to be gritty, deeply empathetic, and, always, beautiful.

L'Oeil de la Photographie

Editors

The Book of Everything celebrates in over 600 images and diverse texts Mark’s extraordinary life, work and vision. From 1963 to her death in 2015, Mark told brilliant, intimate, provocative stories of characters whom she met and engaged with—often in perpetuity. There was nothing casual or unprepared about Mark’s approach; she unfailingly empathized with the people and places she photographed.

BuzzFeed

Editors

Beautiful and intimate images of other people’s lives — the famous and the “un-famous..."

BuzzFeed

Kate Bubacz

An eloquent retrospective of [Mary Ellen Mark's] long career and should be an inspiration for documentary photographers everywhere.

'Barbara Bosworth: The Heavens' is a deluxe photobook for stargazers, dreamers, science lovers and poets

From the outside, Barbara Bosworth's new photobook, The Heavens, appears to be a beautiful, hushed collection of photographs of the Earth's night sky. Open it, however, and in addition to the many photographs of our stars, sun, comets, meteor showers and moon, you will find deluxe papers, exquisite printing, sewn in special portfolio sections devoted to different celestial bodies and phenomena, facsimiles of Galileo's writings and drawings, a usable cut-out planisphere, a list of astronomy books on the artist's shelves (and photographs of some of them), lists of deep sky objects and comets discovered by Caroline Herschel, reproductions of Harvard College Observatory plate glass negatives, a list of astronomical events photographed by Bosworth during the making of the book, facsimile reproductions of some of Bosworth's negative log books, poems, writings and much more. "Last quarter" is reproduced from a sewn-in facsimile edition of Bosworth's 2017 artist's book, The Moon. continue to blog
