1st Printing. 144 pages. Published in 2012. Retrospective Exhibition Monograph. One of the most important and most beautiful photographic collections of its kind ever published. The first and only edition. Published in a tiny print run as a softcover original only. Published on the occasion of the landmark retrospective exhibition of the same name held at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art in 2012. Presents "Portrayal Betrayal". One of the most insightful Modernist perspectives on portraiture. The Modernist definition of the portrait is a "model/subject complicated by the photographer". If so, the history of photographic portraiture has been a continuous aggression towards the subject, with the former's unwitting yet often willing, cooperative, and even indulgent consent. Betrayal goes both ways: The cover features Paula, Hendrik Kerstens' daughter, whom he has made his sole, obsessive subject, photographing her and no one else throughout his career. Kerstens' single-mindedness may have enslaved him but not his daughter, a serene and luminous presence in every portrait, who has mesmerized viewers. An absolute "must-have" title for photography book collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few copies of the Exhibition Monograph still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with tritone and color plates. Some of the greatest photographers of our time. A fine copy.
