Description:

1st Printing. 65 pages. Published in 2006. Collection of black-and-white photographs. One of the most beautiful landscape photography books of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a tiny first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Juan Travnik: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial hard boards with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Juan Travnik. Essay by Ruben Szuchmacher, presented in both the Spanish original and felicitous English translation. Printed in tritone on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Buenos Aires, Argentina to the highest standards. The reproduction quality of the images is stunning in its crispness, tonal range, and warmth. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Juan Travnik's "Los Restos"/"The Remains", photographs of the Latin-American landscape strewn with the detritus of abandoned, failed, and unfinished industrial projects. What remains reminds us keenly of the price developing countries must pay for the on-again, off-again industrialization that exacts its toll on people to be sure, but also on their natural physical environment. As such, Juan Travnik is a direct descendant of Robert Adams (who also refers elegiacally to "What Remains" in his work). An absolute "must-have" title for Juan Travnik collectors. This title is a contemporary art photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with tritone plates. One of the most brilliant living Latin-American photographers. A fine copy. ISBN 9872041229. Bookseller Inventory #
