This volume offers a superbly illustrated review of the work of renowned photographer Jo Ann Callis. An artist who has long exploited the emotional power of colour and texture, Jo Ann Callis is widely known for her inventive photographs involving tactile objects and images of people in mysterious, often unsettling narratives. "Jo Ann Callis" is a magnificently illustrated volume that accompanies the exhibition to be held at the J. Paul Getty Museum between March and August 2009, and constitutes the first full-length treatment of Callis' work - from 1974 to 2005 - for nearly twenty years. Featuring both new and familiar works, this volume attests to Callis' singular vision of the delicate boundary between the world within and the world without.

Judith Keller is acting senior curator in the Dept of Photographs at the J. Paul Getty Museum.
