This fascinating book presents and examines an extremely varied set of some seventy-five photographs taken by Mel Bochner between 1966 and 1969. This virtually unknown body of work, most of which is published here for the first time, reveals much about the crucial role of photography in the artistic development of one of the most important American artists of the postminimal and conceptual art movements.

Published to accompany an exhibition at the Harvard Art Museums, March 16–June 16, 2002, and the Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh, October 2002–January 2003.

Scott Rothkopf is a senior editor at Artforum; Elisabeth Sussman is an independent scholar and curator.
