First edition of 350. ‘Schles examines the photographic work he’s made over the last 25 years and recognizes within it a slew of antecendents and influences. The book exists then not only as a personal record of accomplishment, but also stands as a vivid retelling of the history of photography - a retelling that explores how the ideas of the many get sifted and reconfigured into individual perception in a dynamic and ongoing basis.’
