Dust Jacket Condition: None, As Issued
Edition: 1st Edition.
1st Printing. 95 pages. Published in 2010. Retrospective collection of photographs. Special Limited and Numbered Edition. Number 57 in the continuing Series by Stern. Unlike the first 50 Issues, all of which are softcovers, many of them now rare, beginning with Number 51 (David LaChapelle), the Stern Portfolio Library of Photography, the most avidly collected Photography Series of its kind in the world, will all be published in hardcover only. A brilliant production by Stern: Oversize-volume format. A very tall and slim book. Glossy pictorial hard boards, which utilizes a stunning extreme closeup portrait of Sean Penn, and with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Paolo Pellegrin. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Germany to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents the great Italian photographer's contribution to the now-legendary Series whose brilliant concept is to devote each Issue to a particular photographer, either as a "Portfolio Issue" or as a "Spezial Fotografie". "A journalistic and fine-art photographer with few equals. As well as becoming a full member of Magnum in 2005, he is a contract photographer for Newsweek. Taking photographs worldwide, his subjects often include the underprivileged and those caught in political conflicts. Pellegrin's painterly images are both evocative and remarkably original. He is also a celebrity photographer in his own right, profiling some of the most famous faces of our time" (Publisher's blurb). The Portfolio Magazine/Spezial Fotografie Series have become eminently collectible and now include Contributions by Peter Beard, William Klein, James Nachtwey, Francis Giacobetti, Annie Leibovitz, Nan Goldin, Mario Testino, David LaChapelle, Herb Ritts, Ellen von Unwerth, Giorgia Fiorio, Horst, Martin Parr, and Andreas H. Bitesnich, among many others. An absolute "must-have" title for Paolo Pellegrin collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the greatest photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PAOLO PELLEGRIN/"MAGNUM STORIES", PORTFOLIO MAGAZINE, AND SPEZIAL FOTOGRAFIE TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 3570198472. Bookseller Inventory # 15502
