Presents, in a beautifully produced Limited-Edition format, Jorge L. Torres' photographs of Nature, mediated scrupulously by advanced digital camera technology. "It is inspired by Nature and the people all around us. We live in a society that has forgotten to be present in the Here and Now. These images are a portrait of the very essence that makes every moment a singular experience. From the mundane to the exotic. From the breath full to the breathless. Give yourself to the experience. Contemplate for a moment. Your own being will suggest what is there. Life is Vibration. Vibration is Life" (Jorge L. Torres). Each contemplative image of Nature, presented on the right-hand side, is accompanied en face, with poetic text fragments by Miao Yuan, in both the Chinese original (Chinese characters in Miao's own hand, reproduced on the page) and felicitous English translation. An absolute "must-have" title for Jorge L. Torres collectors. This is a copy of the Limited Edition, indicated/numbered as such on the Front Limitation Page. It is very prominently, elaborately, and beautifully signed, placed, and dated (in the month and year of publication), and inscribed by the artist/photographer: "Chicago, 12/VI/08, Para Martha, Ojala encuentres inspiracion entre estes paginas. Tu amigo, Jorge L. Torres" [Translation: I hope you find inspiration from these pages. Your friend, Jorge L. Torres]. The recipient is an authority figure in the art photography world. This title is a contemporary art photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed and inscribed copy of the Limited Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with full-page color plates. One of the most brilliant American artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. ISBN B001X6G2K2.
