Synopsis: In 1988 photographer Paul D’Amato was driving around Chicago with his camera when he decided to follow Halsted Street into Pilsen, the city’s largest Mexican neighborhood. Intrigued by the barrio and neighboring Little Village, he began to take photographs and would continue to do so off and on for the next fourteen years. D’Amato started with the public life of the neighborhood: women and children in the streets, open fire hydrants, and graffiti. But later—after he got to know the area’s Mexican residents better—he was allowed to take more intimate photos of people at work, families at weddings and parties, and even gang members.

Barrio collects ninety of these striking color images along with D’Amato’s fascinating account of his time photographing Mexican Chicago and his acceptance—often grudging, after threatened violence—into the heart of the city’s Mexican community. Some of the photos here are beautifully composed and startling—visual narratives that are surreal and dreamlike, haunting and mythic. Others, like those D’Amato took while shadowing graffiti artists in the subway, are far more immediate and improvisational. With a foreword by author Stuart Dybek that places D’Amato’s work in the context of the Pilsen and Little Village that Dybek has elsewhere captured so memorably, this book offers a penetrating, evocative, and overall streetwise portrait of two iconic and enduring Hispanic neighborhoods.

About the Author: Paul D’Amato is professor of photography at Columbia College Chicago. His photographs have been featured in the New York Times Magazine, DoubleTake, Harper’s, and several other publications.

Book Description Chicago, IL: University Of Chicago Press, 2006. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 125 pages. Published in 2006. Retrospective collection of photographs. One of Paul D'Amato's finest achievements. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. A brilliant production by Paul D'Amato and the University of Chicago Press: Oversize-volume format. Black cloth boards with metallic-silver titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs by Paul D'Amato. Essay by Stuart Dybek, one of the finest American writers of our time, who is Chicago-based. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Italy to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Paul D'Amato's "Barrio: Photographs From Chicago's Pilsen And Little Village". Widely regarded by admirers and critics as possibly his best book thus far: Some of the most evocatively beautiful photographs of Hispanic-American immigrant life ever. "In 1988, Paul D'Amato was driving around Chicago with his camera when he decided to follow Halsted Street into Pilsen, the city's largest Mexican-American neighborhood. Intrigued by the barrio and neighboring Little Village, he began to take photographs, and continued to do so, off and on, for the next fourteen years. As he got to know the area's residents better, he was allowed to take more intimate photos of people at work, families at weddings, parties, and even gang members. Collects ninety of these striking color images along with a fascinating account of his time photographing Mexican Chicago and his acceptance, often grudging and even threatened violence, into the heart of the city's Mexican-American community. Beautifully composed and startling, these are visual narratives that are surreal and dream-like, haunting and mythic. Offers a penetrating, street-wise portrait of an iconic and enduring Hispanic community" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Paul D'Amato collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed, placed, and dated in black pen-marker on the title page by the photographer: "Paul D'Amato Sept. 15 2017 Chicago". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Laid-in is a pristine copy of the Exhibition Souvenir Announcement during which event his signature was obtained. The book comes in a Souvenir Canvas Bag that was issued on a very limited basis for Opening Night only. This title is a contemporary photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed, placed, and dated copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online, un-signed, command hundreds of dollars (between $250 and $450) because the First Edition is now rare. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. One of the most brilliant American portrait-photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy.
