Robert Heinecken

Robert Heinecken (1931–2006), who headed the photo program at UCLA for three decades, was one of America’s most influential contemporary, conceptual photographers. Heinecken rarely used a camera; his definition of photography encompassed everything related to the photo, as his interest was on the relation of methods and formalism—often in an irreverent and humorous way—to popular media. This comprehensive overview of Heinecken’s work from the 1960s through the 1990s features a complete reproduction of one of the artist’s best-known works: Are You Real series (1964–1968) in addition to his numerous forward-thinking bodies of work. Also includes extensive illustrations and writings that make this book indispensible to any art library, public or private.
