Walter Chappell : Eternal Impermanence, Hardback Book

Walter Chappell : Eternal Impermanence Hardback

Edited by Filippo Maggia


Walter Chappell (1925-2000) is considered one of the foremost figures in twentieth-century American photography.

His thinking and vision of the world were closely connected with the intimistic, spiritual explorations undertaken between the 1950s and the 1970s by artists like Minor White and Paul Caponigro.

While Chappell photographed various subjects, his inner eye was stimulated in particular by the form of the human body and landscapes as well as the combination of both, through which he endeavoured to perceive the creative flow, the energy that runs through and connects all things.

Produced to accompany the first major European retrospective of Walter Chappell's work, this catalogue presents over 130 photographs, all originals, as well as the unfinished and previously unpublished album World of Flesh, which the photographer intended as the primary publication on his work.
