1st Printing. Signed. 25 pages. Published in 2005. Collection of male and female nudes. One of Keith Carter's most beautiful books. Limited Edition of 1000 copies. The first and only edition. Published as part of the now-legendary Portfolio Book Series by Lodima Press as a softcover original only. The title was not reissued once all of the copies were sold. The Limited Edition is now scarce. An austerely elegant production by Lodima Press: Regular-sized volume format. Orange softcovers with black titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and text by Keith Carter. Printed on 200 gsm Job Parilux coated stock paper in 600-line screen quadtone by Salto in Belgium to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Keith Carter's "Opera Nuda". His very first collection of male and female nudes. As nude studies go, they are not the kind one usually expects of the genre. They are sensuous and erotic (as all nudes should be) in the lyrical, understated, and ultimately "spiritual"/mystical style identified with Keith Carter. A remarkable feat of aesthetic poise, the nudes appear to us as radiant apparitions as much as earthly presences. They succeed in embodying true ecstasy, sexual and ethereal, through the juxtaposition of the Classical nude with religious iconography. An absolute "must-have" title for Keith Carter collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Keith Carter. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. Carter signed a very limited number of copies, which all promptly sold out. This title is a contemporary art 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. A rare signed copy thus. 16 plates. One of the greatest American artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. ISBN 1888899255. Bookseller Inventory # 19712
Synopsis: A series of beautiful photography books of previously unpublished work by leading and emerging contemporary photographers. Each book in the series contains from 10 to 18 photographs and includes a statement by the photographer. This series belongs in the library of all lovers of fine photography books. With a different view from this original artist, these nudes are a heretofore unknown aspect of Keith Carter's work.
