KEATON, Diane and Martin HEIFERMAN. Bill Wood’s Business.

(New York, NY and Gottingen, German): International Center of Photography and Steidl, 2008.  First edition.  Oblong quarto.  269 pages.  Bill Wood’s business was photography, and he produced tens of thousands of images over the course of his career. A tall, slender, hardworking family man with a penchant for bow ties, Wood (1913-1979) was born, lived and died in the Fort Worth, Texas area, and his photography played a central role in how his clients chose to see and to portray themselves and their city. The volume illustrates 300 of Wood’s photographs, alongside essays by Diane Keaton and Marvin Heiferman that pay homage to his skills and analyse what the images are intended to depict and what they actually reveal.   A very good copy in photo-illustrated boards without dust jacket as issued.
