This collaborative artists' book reflects a visual dialogue presenting photographs by Lee Friedlander on the left-hand pages, with Dine's etchings facing them on the right side. From the publisher: "Their mutual obsession to record it all in their own media: egocentrifugal forces... who have succeeded here in dedicating their work to each other in the best way, by making them with each other in mind."
