Description:

New copy in slipcase. Text plus 5 DVDs + 3 audio CDs + 1 leaflet ([14] p. : ill. ; 28 cm.). Summary: A founding member of the New Lost City Ramblers and a documentarian of the Abstract Expressionists, the Beats, Bob Dylan, and the "high lonesome sound" of Appalachia, John Cohen has also cultivated a 50-year fascination with the people, cultures, and landscape of Peru. This beautifully produced slipcased collection combines Cohen's photographs, sound recordings, and films of Peru in two bound volumes, three audio CDs, and five DVDs. Beginning with still images in 1956, they form a multimedia impression of his visual insights and a record of his deepening awareness, depicting religious festivals, potato farming, and the introduction of hydroelectricity, as well as a detailed study of traditional Peruvian weaving and folk music. Contents: DVD contents: disc 1. Q'eros : the shape of survival (53 min., 1979) -- disc 2. Peruvian weaving : A continuous warp for 5000 years (25 min., 1980) -- disc. 3. Mountain music of Peru (60 min., 1984) -- disc 4. Carnival in Q'eros (32 min., 1991) -- disc 5. Dancing with the Incas (58 min., 1992) An exceptional copy, in slipcase and boxed. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Literally as new and still in the publisher's original packaging. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: John Cohen is a photographer, musician and filmmaker who has cultivated a fifty-year long fascination with the people, cultures and landscape of Peru. Cohen took his first photographs in Peru in 1956 and has returned many times since to continue documenting, adding musical and film recordings to his still images. Cohens photographs, stored for years in boxes in a barn near his home, and the music, today archived at the Smithsonian Institute, have not been published in their entirety until now. Past Present Peru combines photographs, textiles, music and film in an ambitious book object. The photographs are for Cohen a fragmented collection of visual insights, a record of deepening awareness that depicts the diversity of Peruvian life including religious festivals, potato farming, and the recent introduction of hydroelectricity. The textiles, reproduced in luscious colour, embody pre-Columbian craft traditions more than 5,000 years old. Cohen began recording music in Peru in 1964, using a portable tape recorder to capture performances wherever he could: at festivals, in villagers homes, even waiting at a bus stop. Cohens films are about a sense of things that werent expressed in words, and are themselves a unique historical record.

Book Description John Cohen (Jg. 1932), Fotograf, Musiker und Filmemacher, entwickelte vor über 50 Jahren eine Faszination für das Land Peru, für seine Bewohner, seine Kultur und Landschaft. Seine ersten Fotografien Perus entstanden 1956. Seitdem besuchte er das Land immer wieder, um schließlich seinen Bildern musikalische und filmische Aufnahmen hinzuzufügen. »Past Present Peru« ist ein wahres Cohen-Paket: Der Schuber vereint Cohens Fotografien, welche die Vielfalt Perus - religiöse Feste, Kartoffelanbau etc. - veranschaulichen, farbige Abbildungen von peruanischen Textilien, die eine 5000 Jahre alte Handwerkstradition dokumentieren, sowie drei CDs mit peruanischer Musik und fünf DVDs seiner preisgekrönten Filme. Die »Filme, zwischen 1979 und 1992 entstanden, sind Dokumente liebevoller, eindringlicher und unverstellter Aufmerksamkeit, etwa wenn er die Indianer beim Weben beobachtet. Techniken und Muster reichen bis weit in die Inka-Zeit und davor zurück. Doch . den größten Eindruck hinterlassen Cohens Fotoarbeiten. Direkt, und frei von jeder Fotokünstler-Attitüde, hält er seine Beobachtungen fest, schaut einem Tänzer beim von männlicher Kraft strotzenden Werbetanz um eine Frau zu, folgt dem Trauerzug schwarz verhüllter Frauen oder lässt die Blicke immer wieder über die in ihrer zerklüfteten Kargheit monumentale Gebirgslandschaft schweifen, in der die Bewohner seit Urzeiten unter härtesten Bedingungen leben, lieben, singen, tanzen und sterben.« (Süddeutsche Zeitung) (Text englisch) 2 Bände, je 28,5 x 30 cm, zusammen 284 Seiten, zahlr. farb. und s/w-Abb., geb. im Schuber, 3 CDs, 5 DVDs.
