Best of 2013: Color Rush, American Color Photography from Stieglitz to Sherman

"Mario" (1978), by Philip-Lorca diCorcia, is reproduced from Color Rush, one of our top Holiday Gift Books of 2013. Brimming with outstanding examples of color photography both vintage and contemporary, from magazine pages to gallery walls, and from advertisements to photojournalism, Color Rush charts the history of the medium in the United States from the 1907 unveiling of the autochrome (the first commercially available color process), through the landmark 1981 survey and exhibition catalog, The New Color Photography, which hailed the widespread acceptance of color photography in contemporary art. Essayist Katherine A. Bussard writes, "Although the photograph plays off the long history of color snapshots (and, in fact, the man is diCorcia's brother), diCorcia purposefully amplified the fluorescent light from the refrigerator to achieve an uneasy green cast, full of drama that would be unusual in an everyday snapshot. Because of this connection, meaning shifts and morphs in diCorcia's work in relation to each viewer's own personal photographs. The carefully constructed narrative is continually altered."
