Two books: I believe both are available in U of G library.

“The Edge of Vision”, Lyle Rexer (our readings for Assignment 3 are from this book)
Video interviews with the artist include in The Edge of Vision

“Photography’s Antiquarian Avant-Garde: The New Wave in Old Processes.” Lyle Rexer.

And while we’re talking about Lyle Rexer, these are the five photography books he’d read if stranded on a desert island.
