Press Press Publications, 1996, Softcover, Book Condition: Near Fine Condition, First Edition
Introduction by Bill Clearlake. Limited Edition of 800. Tony sculpts his subjects in light and shadow in the manner of Edward Weston. Edward Weston's style was to abstract his subjects to show only the form-his models became objects, still lifes made of human flesh. Tony manages to bring out the abstract form of his subjects, yet he captures their souls as well. In these photographs you find the beauty of the human form, and the pensiveness, playfulness, or seriousness of his models. You peek into their lives and into their hearts and find where the true beauty of this subjects lie. Through light and shadow, Tony Ryan reveals soul and substance. 96 pages.
