Accidental Paintings.

Accidental Paintings. By Carol Stein. Robin Hill Studios, 2005. 88p., illustrated throughout, 9x9".

Lovely example of the beauty in the everyday, and what a different eye can yield...

Book description:

" 'Accidental Paintings' is a striking selection of 36 abstract color photographs taken in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, in 2004 and 2005 by photographer Carol Stein.

Its subject is surface color and form: its source, the colored edges of built structures and their visual interaction. The result is what can be seen as 'accidental' paintings. This is is a gem-like book, beautifully printed and assembled, whose rich color images suggest a meditation."
