Bargellesi-Severi, Guglielmo [ed.]. ROBERT SMITHSON: Slideworks. 201 pp., roughly 110 color and 195 b&w illustrations. Square 4to, wraps. New York, Carlo Frua, 1997.
Though best known for his monumental earthworks, Robert Smithson also created smaller scale works by placing glass, mirrors and other objects in natural settings, photographing the sites and presenting the results in slideshows. These images stand on their own as a coherent body of photographic work and remind us of the breadth of Smithson's aesthetic. The book concludes with a fully illustrated catalogue raisonne.
