One of the most important and most beautiful photography books of its kind ever published. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as hardcover original that sold out shortly after publication. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Wim Melis: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial hard boards with copper cloth overboards and titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by the Who's Who of contemporary Latin-American photography. You name him or her, he or she is in this book. Curated with text by Wim Melis. Text by various other expert/specialists. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper in Amsterdam, The Netherlands to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the Nooderlicht Photography Festival, which was held in various venues, in 2002. Presents "Mundos Creados". The ground-breaking European retrospective festival on contemporary Latin-American art photography. Produced as a handy reference guide to its subject, Wim Melis divides his book into two parts: "Mundos Creados I" and "Mundos Creados II", with an extended Epilogue. The exhibition itself was presented into four parts, as a "quadrivium", to make the rich subject more easily digestible. Collectively, they capture the vitality, diversity, and sheer beauty of contemporary Latin-American art photography. Luis Gonzalez Palma opens "Mundos Creados I". So many names are not yet familiar to most viewers, but their work speaks for itself. They will astonish, surprise, and delight. Of course, the works of Graciela Iturbide, Flor Garduno, Mario Cravo Neto, and Miguel Rio Branco are also here, in all their transcendent beauty and power. An absolute "must-have" title for Luis Gonzalez Palma and contemporary art photography collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on his Contribution by Luis Gonzalez Palma. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The latter opens "Mundos Creados I", a distinct honor. This title is a contemporary photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Exhibition Monograph available online and despite its imperfection (a small pinch on top of the front board) is still in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: This pioneering book will probably not materialize again because all of the copies sold out upon publication, many of them spirited away by Rare Book library collections. A rare signed copy thus. Hundreds of plates. Some of the greatest artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy.
