1st Printing. Signed. 30 pages. Published in 1999. Collection of female and male nudes. One of James Fee's most impressive achievements. The first and only edition. Published in a tiny first print run as a softcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. The book is beautifully produced, with an illuminating Essay by Craig Krull and stunning reproductions printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents James Fee's "New Figurative Work". His formal female and male nude studies. Produced by cutting up the negatives and manipulating the printing process, the resulting imagery has a dream-like atmosphere and eerie quality that are entirely consistent with James Fee's singular body of work. Fee is best-known for "Photographs of America" (1995), iconic images of negative majesty: An America that is abandoned in all her glory, actual relics strewn throughout the United States that he captured during a road trip across the country's unpopulated landscape. Fee intended to comment on Robert Frank's similarly disturbing evocations in "The Americans", and his brilliant twist is that there are no actual people, no Americans in his own photographs. The present volume, however slim, shows the wider technical and emotional range of his beautiful, melancholy work. An absolute "must-have" title for James Fee collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by James Fee. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Fee did not sign most copies of the book. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Please note: Copies available online command between $85 and 100. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. 22 color plates. One of the greatest American photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JAMES FEE TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN B0027BJEX4. Bookseller Inventory # 20289
