1st Printing. Signed. 16 pages. Published in 2004. Artist Book. The 22nd title in the now-legendary "One Picture Book" Series by Nazraeli Press, one of the most superb ongoing projects of contemporary art photography. Artist Proof. Precedes and should not be confused with the Limited Edition of 500 numbered and signed copies. This edition was never commercially sold by the publisher. An elegant production by Chris Pichler: Small-size volume format. Titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Eduardo del Valle and Mirta Gomez. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Eduardo Del Valle's and Mirta Gomez's "Four Sections of Time". A triumphant achievement. The photographers' stunningly beautiful and moving documentation, as aptly captured by the title, of the effects of seasonal and linear time on a single structure in Labna, Yucatan over several years. Todd Hido photographed a house in "Taft Street" over four seasons, showing the moody character of the changing of seasons. What Eduardo del Valle and Mirta Gomez have photographed is flux, showing ruin and survival at the same time. The Cuban-born husband and wife team has worked collaboratively for thirty years, receiving international acclaim for their photographs of subjects in a state of flux. They are recipients of Guggenheim, Cintas, and NEA fellowships in photography. Their work has been widely exhibited in the United States and abroad, and is in the Permanent Collections of The Museum of Modern Art New York, The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and The Brooklyn Museum. The great photographer Lewis Baltz, who is best-known for his desolate urban landscape work, once referred to the work of photographers like Hamish Fulton, Paul Hill, Humphrey Repton, and Richard Long as "land artists", photographers who have a genuine connection with the land in a way that their predecessors (like Ansel Adams) did not. These are very different artist/photographers but what unites them all is a love of the land and its structures, whose primary characteristics are flux, change, metamorphosis, and ultimately, evolution (in the artistic sense). Ansel Adams sought to capture majesty through breathtaking photographs of scenic landscapes and stunning landmarks. What is uniquely and profoundly moving about the "land artists" is a search not for static and immutable Essences but for Reality in all its concreteness, ruin, and beauty. They do not take pretty pictures; they take beautifully honest pictures. An absolute "must-have" title for Eduardo del Valle and Mirta Gomez collectors. This is an Artist Proof of "Fall 1997", is indicated as such ("A/P"), and is very prominently and beautifully signed in pencil on the Back Limitation Page by Eduardo Del Valle and Mirta Gomez. It comes with an original color print. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Artist Proof available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: The remaining copies from the publisher command $150. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. 4 color plates, 1 original print. Two of the finest American artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ONE PICTURE BOOK, EDUARDO DEL VALLE, AND MIRTA GOMEZ TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1590050770.
