While Ruscha's books are his signature work, he has made numerous photographs over the past forty-five years that are previously unpublished or unknown. Ed Ruscha and Photography details Ruscha's first engagement with photography, his photographic books, his hiatus from the medium, and his new appreciation of its impact on his career. It traces his engagement with photography, and reveals how his photographic work shed light on his career as a whole.
