1st Printing. Signed. 16 pages. Published in 2005. Artist Book. The 31st title in the now-legendary "One Picture Book" Series by Nazraeli Press, one of the most superb ongoing projects of contemporary art photography. Limited Edition of 500 numbered and signed copies. Accompanied by one tipped-in, original print by the artist/photographer (hence the Series' name). An elegant production by Chris Pichler: Small-size volume format. Titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Ken Ohara. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Ken Ohara's "One". One of the most important and most stunning collections ever in the Series. "In 1970, Ken Ohara created a body of work called 'One', for which he randomly selected people on the streets of New York and asked if he could take their picture. The resulting full-face portraits are larger-than-life, close-cropped black-and-white photographs that are as striking as they are unsettling. Ohara's subjects vary in gender, race and age but the portraits come together as a homogenous whole" (Publisher's blurb). A high spot in the history of photography, now available in a lovely new edition. An absolute "must-have" title for Ken Ohara collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such in pen on the Back Limitation Page. It comes with an original print (of the single most iconic image in the entire collection) that is very prominently and beautifully signed in pencil on verso by Ken Ohara. This title is a great photography book. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: The remaining copies from the publisher command $150. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce signed copy thus. 10 duotone plates, 1 original print. One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ONE PICTURE BOOK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1590051467. Bookseller Inventory # 9219
