Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0941017885, Perfect Paperback)Between 1948 and 1953, Dick Miller shot over a hundred 4x5 black and white negatives of the construction of the Hollywood Freeway. Using a 4x5 Graflex or view camera, he made these photographs for himself. Produced in the post war years when the word progress wasn t uttered with contempt, these photographs form a bridge between the classic heroic depictions of the Western landscape and the more ironic viewpoint of the New Topographics movement some thirty years later. It is important to note that Dick had close ties to the Westons; he knocked on Edward Weston s door in Santa Monica in 1936 asking to see his work. Dick bought a dozen prints from him over the years for $25 each and his choices were not parochial. His best friend for over fifty years was Brett Weston. Dick understood the language of the landscape photograph. But he also saw beauty in the man-altered landscape.
