A brilliant production by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and Marcello Francone: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial softcovers, which feature a portrait of Woody Allen on the cover, and white titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. Text by Gianni Mercurio. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Milan, Italy to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held at the Museo Carlo Bilotti Rome from October 17, 2007 through January 13, 2008. Presents Timothy Greenfield-Sanders' "Movie Stars". A veritable feast. Here are Woody Allen, Wes Anderson, Matthew Broderick, Matt Dillon, Anne Hathaway, Ethan Hawke, Alfred Hitchcock, Nicole Kidman, Jodie Foster, Julianne Moore, Guy Pearce, Vanessa Redgrave, Steven Spielberg, and Orson Welles, among many others, in some of their most soulful sittings ever, in "pictures of people who are looking at us". Every single portrait is "full-frontal", with the subject looking straight into the camera, shyly and confidently, casually and seriously, a compelling, undeniable presence, which surely helps explain why they are stars in the first place. The photographs are composed with a simplicity, rigor, and austerity that remind one of the work of Peter Hujar, except that it's all in color. There is none of the knowing "inside" joke or sly comment one finds in most "post-modern" portraiture. An absolute "must-have" title for Timothy Greenfield-Sanders collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed and inscribed in black pen-marker on the title page by the photographer: "You are (followed arrow pointing to the printed title) a movie star! Timothy Greenfield-Sanders". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The recipient is named. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 50 plates. Timothy Greenfield-Sanders is Resident Photographer of Vanity Fair Magazine and was commissioned by the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) to photograph 700 American figures for its Permanent Collection. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine copy. Bookseller Inventory # 13845
