Reproduced from prints made by Lee Friedlander. Preface by Lee Friedlander. Edited by John Szarkowski. 33 plates . 8vo pp. 18 + tavole Brossura (wrappers) Molto Buono (Very Good) Selected from a group of glass plates discovered in Bellocq's desk after his death, the portraits were printed especially for this volume by the photographer Lee Friedlander, and constitute the only fragment of Bellocq's work known to have survived / "Nel 1970, un oscuro fotografo commerciale di New Orleans, E. J. Bellocq, ebbe gloria postuma quando le sue foto di figure femminili (in particolare i nudi) , probabilmente prostitute del quartiere a luci rosse di Storyville, furono esposte al Moma di New York. Scattate intorno al 1912, erano state stampate da Lee Friedlander da 89 lastre molto danneggiate acquistate presso un rivenditore di New Orleans [..] Ma numerosi fattori esterni hanno conferito a queste foto un fascino inspiegabile che mescola stranezza e mistero. Alcuni volti sono stati cancellati rozzamente e la stampa morbida e antica di Friedlander dona alle immagini un'aria incantata e romantica" (dal Dizionario della fotografia, a cura di Robin Lenman. Einaudi, 2008)
