Limited Edition Signed Richard Misrach Books image

Blind Spot Series is a series of limited-run artist books limited to 1000 copies presenting a suite of images from a single body of work.

Richard Misrach set out to capture the aftermath of the catastrophic firestorm which had hit the Oakland and Berkkeley Hills in October 1991. Misrach recorded both intimate details of destroyed homes and large vistas of the devastated area with a 8 × 10 inch view camera.

Out of respect for the vicitms these images had remained unexhibited for 20 years. Only now, to mark the 20th anniversary of the tragic events an exhibition is being held simultaneously at The Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive and The Oakland Museum of California.

Photographer Richard Misrach recently visited The Photographer’s Gallery and signed copies of his limited edition book “1991”.

The Photographer’s Gallery only has a few copies of this stunning book so get it quick while stocks last…
