Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 50 pages. Published in 2013. Collection of color photographs on Houston. One of Thomas Kellner's finest achievements. Limited Edition of 1000 copies. The first and only edition. The Limited Edition is now scarce. A brilliant production by Thomas Kellner: Oversize-volume format. White hard boards with black titles printed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Thomas Kellner. Essays by various contributors. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Berlin, Germany to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Thomas Kellner's "Houston, We've Had A Problem". Grid-photographs of NASA. Thomas Kellner travelled to Houston in 2009 and accompanied the astronaut Leland Melvin at his mission to the space station ISS. There he took photographs of the Mission Control Center and experienced the start of the Space Shuttle Atlantis flying into the space. "By inviting us into Mission Control, Thomas Kellner re-establishes the humanness of space, the work and the need that have together allowed us to expand our world beyond the planet we inhabit. The energy and excitement in this endeavor is palpable. Kellner spent more than ten years trying and working to make his space project happen, and his longing can be felt in the photographs. It is the age-old human longing to map the great unknown. Kellner and Melvin's presence draws the viewer into the image, encouraging us to place ourselves in Mission Control. While this is an unusually overt inclusion of the human element, it is not the most significant. For how Kellner truly re-introduces the human element to outer space is in the space between. It is the space between the fragmented frames of the image, which we must hold together, activated and engaged through our vision. It is the space between us here and the people and machines we send out there. It is the space between images on a contact sheet, black as the void of cosmic anti-matter that is the source of all matter, of all human creativity. In Kellner's photographs the space of space is reopened, reminding us of the freedom and promise of outer space" (NASA). "NASA is a big visual producer of images we all grew up with: The rockets, the shuttle, the space station. Pictures from space. Pictures of Earth. I want to give the images NASA puts into our world an artistic comment" (Thomas Kellner). An absolute "must-have" title for Thomas Kellner collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Thomas Kellner. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Kellner did not sign most copies of the book. This title is a contemporary art photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Limited Edition available online and despite its slight imperfection (bumping on board corners) is still in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Please note: According to Kellner himself, he does NOT do public signings. This copy comes directly from him. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. One of the most brilliant artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER THOMAS KELLNER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 3942831775. Bookseller Inventory #
