§ Centennial edition, no. 33 of 100 copies signed by Bernhard. First issued in 1986. Ruth Bernhard (1905-2006) was a German-born American photographer. "Distinguished by their exquisite use of light, her images have been internationally recognized and acclaimed by her peers. Radiant still-life studies and nude forms reflect her passionate search for the universal connection of all things. Said by Ansel Adams to be the finest photographer of the nude, Bernhard is associated with the history of Northern California's wealth of eminent photographers, among them Adams, Edward Weston, Imogen Cunningham, and Dorothea Lange."
