Lucas Samaras

Published by Whitney Museum of American Art, 1971

Hardcover, 104 pages, 245 x 300 mm.

First edition, 2100 copies.

Published in anticipation of the Whitney's 1972 retrospective, Album is Lucas Samaras' multimedia self-portrait, featuring a self-interview, autobiography, and hundreds of Polaroid images, both black-and-white and in color. It gathers the artist's first body of photographic work, the revealingly transformative self-portraits he called Autopolaroids, generally distorted and mutilated. He has worked with multi-media collages, and by manipulating the wet dyes in Polaroid photographic film to create what he calls Photo-Transformations.
