Synopsis: This haunting collection of photographs reflects the surreal vision of the New York collector W.M. Hunt. The photographs have a common theme the gaze of the subject is averted, the face obscured or the eyes firmly closed and range from Andre Breton's self-portrait with eyes closed to Ruth Snyder in the electric chair in 1928 and from Weegee's multi-imaged portrait of Andy Warhol in sunglasses to Robert Mapplethorpe's photographs of the artist Alice Neel with her eyes closed. The pictures present a catalogue of anti-portraiture, characterized at first glance by what its subject conceal, not by what the camera reveals. The continuous plate section, broadly ordered as a portrait of humanity from birth to death, has a commentary by Hunt running through it, in which he offers his own intense and perceptive responses to the images he has gathered over many years, as well as insights into the psychology of collecting.

Book Description Der New Yorker Sammler W. M. Hunt trug eine faszinierende Sammlung ungewöhnlicher fotografischer Porträts zusammen. Doch verbergen diese vielmehr, als dass sie eine Persönlichkeit offenbaren. Denn die porträtierten Menschen haben ihre Augen geschlossen, den Blick abgewandt oder das Gesicht verdeckt. Diese »Anti-Porträts« reichen von André Bretons Selbstbildnis mit geschlossenen Augen über Weegees Mehrfachporträt Andy Warhols mit Sonnenbrille bis hin zu Robert Mapplethorpes Bildnis der Künstlerin Alice Neel, die ebenfalls ihre Augen geschlossen hält. Dieser surreale Blick auf den Menschen - von der Geburt bis zum Tod - ist Thema der vorliegenden, hochinteressanten Publikation. (Text engl.) 27 x 28,5 cm, 320 S., 396 Abb., davon 123 farbig, geb.
