Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 116 pages. Published in 2012. Retrospective Exhibition Monograph. One of the single most beautiful books on the photographic art of Dawoud Bey. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a tiny first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. A brilliant production by Dawoud Bey: Regular-sized volume format. Gray hard boards with white titles on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Dawoud Bey. Essays by Arthur C. Danto, the great art critic and cultural philosopher, and other scholars. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Published on the occasion of the landmark retrospective exhibition of the same name held at the Renaissance Society of the University of Chicago in 2012. Presents Dawoud Bey's "Picturing People". A triumphant achievement. "Since 1975, Dawoud Bey has developed a body of work distinguished for its commitment to portraiture as a means of reflecting social circumstances. Ranging from street encounters to studio portraits, Bey has investigated numerous photographic methods to find increased engagement with his subjects. Includes selections from Bey's work spanning the thirty years from 1982 to the present. Offers a comprehensive look at Bey's oeuvre. Provides an opportunity to explore related subjects in art history and social discourse: The presentation of self, race, site, and the relationship between artist and subject. Includes Essays by Arthur Danto and Julie Bernson as well as an Interview between Bey and the Renaissance Society Associate Curator/Director of Education, Hamza Walker" (Publisher's blurb). A gem of a monograph. An absolute "must-have" title for Dawoud Bey collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and inscribed in black ink-pen on the title page by the photographer: "For Paul, With warm regards, Dawoud Bey". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. The recipient, Paul Berlanga, is the former Director of Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago, which represents Dawoud Bey. Berlanga is an important photography expert and a brilliant painter in his own right. This title is a contemporary art photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed and inscribed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. One of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine copy.
