Brown cloth boards with titles embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Stephen M. Schaub. Text by Eve Ogden Schaub. Printed in 600 line-screen quadtone on cream, thick uncoated Salto no. 3, 200 gsm stock paper by the Salto Press in Belgium to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in a Limited Edition collectible format, Stephen M. Schaub's "Through A Glass Darkly". Photographs of landscapes that evoke and depict "unprocessed emotion". Repudiating what characterizes the "photographic" (clarity, sharpness, reproducibility), Schaub has embraced the Pictorialist tradition of photography's great past, which emphasized an expressiveness that aspired to the level of painting. As such, he calls himself a "Neo-Pictorialist", who uses natural settings and landscapes (it is more accurate to call them "external realities") that he photographs and then digitally manipulates in order to achieve an indistinct, non-referential, and ethereal/otherworldly imagery, an exploration of the spiritual life in all of its transitive instability, or what Schaub poetically calls "unprocessed emotion". "The result is a collection of non-places and non-things which collectively inhabit a less rational universe than our own, one that feels both strangely familiar and highly symbolic" (Eve Ogden Schaub). Images that have the pull of a dream, scrupulously and beautifully reproduced, they represent a genuine achievement. An absolute "must-have" title for Stephen M. Schaub collectors. This is a copy of the Limited Edition of 3000 copies. This title is a contemporary art photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with black-and-white plates. One of the most brilliant American artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO LUISA MENAZZI MORETTI TITLE IN OUR CATALOG).
