Presents, in a Limited Edition format, Mario Algaze's "Portfolio". Photographs personally selected and edited by the artist/photographer from a lifetime of achievement, what he considers, in effect, to be his finest and most representative images. "Algaze's mix of intimacy and formality is so delicately balanced it would be thrilling were it not so cool" (Vince Aletti). "Algaze has the soul of a storyteller, and he seeks what he terms 'profundidad', the depth of human emotion. His photographs are as much about the artist's own search for the self as they are about the places and people that he photographs. They reveal inner states of mind and simultaneously tell stories about endurance, ancient traditions, and their intersection with contemporary life" (The Wall Street Journal). These are photographs, beautifully reproduced for posterity, that will take your breath away. An absolute "must-have" title for Mario Algaze and Latin-American photography collectors. This copy of the Limited Edition is very boldly and beautifully signed in pencil on the flyleaf by Mario Algaze. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Limited Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Algaze did NOT sign most copies of the book. A rare signed copy thus. 66 full-page, black-and-white plates. One of the greatest living Latin-American photographers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MARIO ALGAZE TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN B007JRVEQ6. Bookseller Inventory #
