Desire for Magic

Patrick Nagatani 1978–2008
Edited by Michele M. Penhall



This distinctive monograph designed by Christopher Kaltenbach is the first publication to survey the major photographic campaigns Patrick Nagatani (b. 1945) has completed during his long and still unfolding career. It includes seven critical essays by distinguished scholars each addressing a specific project from a unique perspective, a comprehensive bibliography, exhibition history, and previously unpublished texts significant
to particular projects. This monograph provides an opportunity to see the breadth and range of Nagatani's color photography, and to see into the elaborately constructed worlds of his imagination.
