Vancouver BC Douglas & McIntyre 1994 1550542354 / 9781550542356 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket Illustrated by Sepia tone photos 
DJ has 3/4" closed tear on back. ; A bright, solid book. Dust jacket in Mylar jacket protector. ; Small 4to 9" - 11" tall; 132 pages; "Many Native Americans photographed by Edward S. Curtis (1868–1952) called him Shadow Catcher. But the images he captured were far more powerful than mere shadows. When the twentieth century was just getting underway, Curtis began documenting North American Indian culture in words and photographs. Today, almost one hundred years later, his work still stands as the most extensive and informative collection of its kind. His photographs are more than mere documents; they are works of art revealing subtleties of human expression missing from other historical and anthropological records. Filled with Curtis’s breathtaking photographs and available for the first time in a paperback edition, Shadow Catcher traces Curtis’s life and work from his boyhood in Wisconsin, through his first photo expedition to Alaska in 1897 and the completion of The North American Indian collection in 1930, to his death in 1952."

Bridges of Light  Otto Landauer of Leonard Frank Photos, 1945-1980, Leonoff, Cyril E. &  Otto Landauer
20 Leonoff, Cyril E. & Otto Landauer Bridges of Light Otto Landauer of Leonard Frank Photos, 1945-1980
Burnaby, BC Talonbooks 1997 0889223769 / 9780889223769 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Light edge wear to DJ.; Dust jacket in Mylar jacket protector. A bright, solid book.; B&W Photographs; 208 pages; A collection of photographs of mid-century Vancouver and some other areas of British Columbia, taken between 1945 and 1980. "Otto Landauer was a modest man. He was proud of Vancouver, felt strongly that his photographs recorded the continuum of the history of the city and he had an archivist’s determination that the photos he produced with such loving care, like those of his predecessor, Leonard Frank, should be preserved for posterity. But it never would have occurred to Landauer that his personal story mattered. Yet it does. In a substantial introductory biography, Bridges of Light tells the harrowing, heartbreaking and ultimately redeeming story of persecution, survival and the final triumph of Otto Landauer’s intrepid faith. It is inseparable from the art of his photographs, and his superb craftsmanship matters to anyone concerned with or at all interested in the history of photography. Otto Landauer was part of a long line of great photographers of the Canadian West, and in the medium of black and white, he was at the magnificent end of that line.A companion piece to and continuation of An Enterprising Life, the first volume in the Leonard Frank Studio publications, Bridges of Light is a beautiful photo art book containing over 300 photographs reproduced in exquisite 200 line screen duotones on wood-free paper."
