This is a first edition, first printing of the critically acclaimed photobook “Public Relations” published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York in 1977. Parr & Badger in “The Photobook: A History” commenting on “Public Relations” wrote, “The book contains many of his (Garry Winogrand) best individual pictures – amongst the most virtuoso, complex and convoluted small-camera photographs ever made – and since they focus on real, historic events, they give a stronger contextual focus that usual to his formal enquiries … Gary Winogrand remains a sharp-eyed social anthropologist and “Public Relations”, while an infallible guide to Winogrand the artist and the man, is also an exuberant and fascinating chronicle of American public life during the 1970s.”
Containing 76 black-and-white photographs and measuring approximately 8.5” x 10.75”, the book is bound in blue cloth covered boards with a photographically illustrated dust jacket. The book is in FINE- condition with some light fading to the board edges.
