Up Against it: Photographs of the Berlin Wall
Rice began photographing the West German side of the Berlin Wall in 1983. Calling himself a brightly colored pictographic art, graffiti, symbols, poetry, slogans, and expletives that covered the surface of the Wall. Now, with the Wall gone, these 38 brilliant color plates are even more resonant with historical and cultural meaning. The accompanying essay is by Charles E. McClelland (history, U. of New Mexico). 103/4x91/4 Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
