A fine copy of this rare and collectible book. Like new, in mylar envelope.

Robert Heinecken (1931-2006) described himself as a para-photographer because he rarely made use of a camera. Instead, he used material from magazines, advertising, and other media to make his collages. An exception to that practice, however, is Lessons in Posing Subjects, shot between 1976 and 1982 with a Polaroid SX-70.

For Lessons in Posing Subjects, Heinecken made a whole series of polaroid pictures from mainstream fashion catalogs. is a kind of semiotic inquiry into posing.

Heinecken, who founded the photography program at the University of California, Los Angeles, played a significant role in the evolution of conceptual photography.  He is regarded as a precursor of the Pictures Generation—the movement of artists in the 1970s and 1980s, including Sherrie Levine, Richard Prince, and Cindy Sherman, who appropriated imagery from popular culture for their work.

Heinecken's techniques included photograms, collage, and experimentation with found imagery. He often challenged societal norms and explored themes of consumerism, sexuality, and the media's influence on culture.
