About this Item

np, profusely illustrated in color. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. "Falkland Road is a notorious street in Bombay lined with old wooden buildings which teem with prostitutes hanging out of the windows, in the viewing cages on the ground floor, and on the steps. From sunrise to sunset the customers pass down the street to survey the girls. Mary Ellen Mark's extraordinary portrait of Falkland Road was first published by Knopf in 1981, and has long been recognized as one of the major bodies of work in the canon of this significant Magnum photographer. The book contains sixty-five photographs made over six weeks that show the daily life lived by the women (and men) of the street. Mark's images are beautiful, electric, shocking, and remarkable for their emotional power and for the visceral brilliance of their color". A most presentable copy of the 1981 softbound first edition (cited on pages 324-325 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book" and page 79 of Fred Ritchin and Carole Naggar's "Magnum Photobook: A Catalogue Raisonné") additionally bearing the BOLDLY SIGNED PRESENTATION "To . - Fondly - Mary Ellen Mark Dec 1992 San Diego CA" in black ink on the half-title page showing some wear, age toning and delamination to the wrappers in addition to soiling to the rear cover. It has been priced accordingly.
