Description:

1st Printing. Signed. Unpaginated. Published in 2001. Retrospective collection of photographs. Now considered a contemporary photography classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. A brilliant production by Timothy White and Hotfoot Studio: Oversize-volume format. Black hard boards with gray titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs by Timothy White. Foreword by Harrison Ford. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Hong Kong to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ, which utilizes a darkly lit portrait of Nicholas Cage, and with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Timothy White's "Portraits". Some of the photographer's finest and most representative portraits, taken over a twenty-year period, the 1980's through 2000, which saw the rise of "dime-a-dozen" celebrity photographers. Most of them have faded into obscurity. Although he is not as well-known to the general public (as say, Richard Avedon or Annie Leibovitz), Timothy White is an institution in the closely intertwined worlds of Hollywood and photography. Indefatigable, he now owns the world's single largest archive of celebrity photographic work, commissioned by and done for virtually every magazine, newspaper, advertisement, and film production. White opted to be that rare, precarious species, the "freelancer", the opposite of someone like Leibovitz, who works mainly for Vanity Fair Magazine, developing a trademark look and style that are instantly recognizable. Timothy White's style is promiscuous and deliberately unidentifiable: He borrows everything that he has seen, liked, absorbed, admired, and soaked up around him, and then reflects it all back in his own work. It is photography-as-appropriation in the most fully "post-modernist" sense. It is also why every portrait in this collection is self-contained: The gossamer portrait of Jeremy Irons is very different from the Larry Clark-influenced raw snapshot of River Phoenix. White "matches" his individual subject to the "right" photographic style, quoting from the whole history of portraiture. The result is consistently fascinating and memorable, a point that the publisher makes: "Each is a unique, compelling, and color-rich composition that provides an intimate picture of its subject and reveals why Timothy White is a Master" (Publisher's blurb). Intimacy, like sex, is relative; it can be a mind-blowing one-night stand, a passionate fling, a loving romance, and of course, a lifelong commitment. Still, at whatever level, it is desired by most of us, as it is the one connection that we somehow make when we look at photographs in general and celebrity portaits in particular. All things considered, the experience is rewarding enough in a world that is now largely impersonal and oppressively frantic. An absolute "must-have" title for Timothy White collectors. This copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Timothy White. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate. This title is now collectible. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. 100 plates. One of the most brilliant photographers of our time. A fine copy. ISBN 0847823989. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Timothy White: Portraits is an artful anthology of White's best work, a collection of celebrity photography that is a testimony to why White is considered a contemporary master of the portrait. The extraordinary depth of color in White's work is showcased throughout the book in every photograph. The original composition of each image conveys a distinct mood and an aspect of the subject's personality, be it Julia Roberts lost in contemplation in the midst of a junkyard or Nicolas Cage in mysterious profile, emerging suddenly from total matte black darkness. A foreword by Harrison Ford, a long-time personal friend and client of White's, emphasizes the intimate and personal feel of the book.

About the Author: Timothy White's innovative work has been syndicated around the world and has appeared on the covers of virtually every high-profile fashion, entertainment, and celebrity and lifestyle-oriented publication, including Rolling Stone, Esquire, and Vogue. He has shot album covers and publicity photographs for an incredible roster of musicians as well as hundreds of movie posters for every major studio. His archive of celebrity photos is among the most sought-after in the world and includes almost every major star of the last 20 years. He is also the owner of Whitespace, a state-of-the-art photography studio.
