Philip Trager: Photographing Ina
Text by Andrew Szegedy-Maszak.
In Photographing Ina, Philip Trager (born 1935), renowned for his black-and-white images, embraces color for the first time. His images are as much about the act of photographing, perception, color and light, as they are about his subject, his wife Ina, whose presence is a constant and unifying motif.
Trager photographed his wife on only two occasions. This book comprises images from these contrasting bodies of work: black-and-white photographs made after 25 years lived together; and color photographs made between 2006 and 2011, after 50 years together. These intimate, openly theatrical images, made in concentrated sessions rather than as an ongoing diary, embody an enduring love and shared passion for art.
This clothbound volume offers a new perspective on one of America’s most renowned photographers.
Featured image is reproduced from Philip Trager: Photographing Ina.
