Harrington, Richard; Edmund Carpenter (Ed.). Padlei Diary, 1950; An Account of the Padleimiut Eskimo in the Keewatin District west of Hudson Bay during the Early Months of 1950 as witnessed, Written & Photographed by Richard Harrington. Rock Foundation, 2000. Limited edition. pp. 109. 4to. Bound in gray cloth with blind-stamped title to spine. Gorgeous and sensitive sepia-toned photographs depicting the lives of the Inuit in the harsh northern climate. No detectable flaws; near fine in very good+ lightly rubbed dustjacket showing on every small knick along spine; housed in lightly rubbed slipcase. Overall, very good+. “Westerners have been re-inventing Eskimos for centuries. Richard Harrington accepted them as he found them. The result is a rare, rare record, marked by honesty & compassion. His photographs speak for themselves. He himself says little. In an age of celebrity photographers, he simply works. It seems incredible that photographs of this sensitivity should remain unknown, unhonored, and the events themselves forgotten or denied.” Hardcover. (#37) $200.00
