Baltz (Lewis) Archive
Series II. Books, portfolios and exhibition materials, 1988-2012, undated
Most of the materials in this series can be seen as compilations on Baltz's career. Included are binders compiled for the two volume retrospective publication Rule without Exception; Only Exceptions (Göttingen: Steidl, 2012) and a binder of exhibition and installation shots. Although Baltz was a collaborator in the Steidl project, the publication falls out of the scope of his original work and is thus not a project in the sense of Series I. Also included are Jeffery Rian's Rowboat portfolio and a letter relating to Baltz's Three Videos portfolio. Rian's portfolio is included here as an example of a group portfolio to which Baltz contributed.
Arranged roughly by date.
