1st Printing. 100 pages. Published in 1989. The artist/photographer's breakthrough debut collection. One of the most sensational art photography debuts of the last decade of the 20th century. Limited Edition of 3000 copies. Precedes and should not be confused with the second collection published by Twin Palms a full decade later (1999). The Limited Edition is now scarce. An austerely elegant production by Matt Mahurin and Jack Woody: Oversize-volume format. Maroon linen cloth boards with black titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Matt Mahurin. Each of the images is presented on the right-hand page only. Printed in gravure on thick, uncoated stock paper in Tokyo, Japan to the highest standards. In matching DJ with black titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents, eponymously, "Matt Mahurin". Hypnotic collection. "This dream-like book of photographs contains images made from within a Texas prison, inside a mental hospital, and from such diverse locations as Paris, London, Ireland, New York City, Haiti, and Nicaragua. These dark, disquieting pictures are successful in their collective evocation of a world frighteningly askew" (Publisher's blurb). At his very best, Matt Mahurin is a transcendent artist who captures the inscrutable mystery and elusive beauty of our world, a kindred spirit of Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Clarence John Laughlin, and Keith Carter. A haunting beauty of a book. An absolute "must-have" title for Matt Mahurin collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such on the Back Limitation Page. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. 47 sheet-fed gravure plates. One of the most brilliant artist/photographer of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MATT MAHURIN TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0942642376.
