Need Help Identifying a Book

2 posts in this topic

I once saw a book that was nothing but full-page photographs of gorillas' faces. This is hard to understand without seeing the book, but it was one of the most beautiful and profoundly moving things I have ever seen. Does anyone happen to know the book and its title? I've done a little googling and have not been able to find it. Thanks.

Edit: The most popular book that is somewhat (but not really) similar seems to be Almost Us. This is not the book I am thinking of. Thanks again.

Book Description: New York City, NY: W. W. Norton & Company. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 87 pages. Published in 1993. The photographer's breakthrough debut collection. One of the most beautiful photography books of the year 1993. A lovely production by Robin Schwartz: Small-size volume format. Black cloth boards with metallic-silver titles on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and text by Robin Schwartz. In pictorial DJ with black titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents the naturalist photographer's witty and loving work on various primates: Monkeys, gorillas, chimpanzees, and many others. What is singular, and much-discussed, about many of the photographs is the way Schwartz has photographed the animals in artificial, man-made settings, dressed and seemingly behaving and posing like humans. As the publisher's blurb says, it asks the eternal question, "How much do we have in common with our fellow primates?" Quite a bit and most of it very comforting, actually. A wonderful book. This title has been out-of-print for a very long time. This is one of very few copies still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the most talented living American photographers. A flawless copy. ISBN 0393034992. Bookseller Inventory # 4069
