About this Item: Peliti Associati, Photo&Co, Milano (Milan), 1998. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Fine black cloth-covered boards with title stamped in gold on cover and spine, with photographically illustrated dust jacket. Photographs by Luis González Palma. Afterword (in Italian) by Laura Leonelli. Designed by Donatella Pistocchi and Fulvio Forleo. Unpaginated (90 pp., including 3 two-page gatefolds), with 70 four-color plates (most spanning two or more pages) gorgeously printed full-bleed on heavy coated paper by EBS, Verona, Italy. 9-3/4 x 9-3/4 inches. Fine in Fine dust jacket (slight shelf wear). A breathtaking presentation of the Guatemalan photographer's singular work, richly printed with deep blacks drenched in golden sepia and accented with the blinding whites of his subjects' eyes. From an essay by Marge Bulmer: "González Palma declares that he tries 'to portray the soul of a people.' His portraits and images not only succeed in acknowledging his cultural heritage, they also communicate universal psychological overtones and contemporary sociological, political issues. Symmetrically organized, frontally posed, his portraits become still life that paradoxically reveal more, not less. The arrangement of his compositions have a quietude that convey an internal power, articulating strong emotions and evoking serious narratives. It is classically formal and echoes Victorian portraiture. The people fill the foreground, demanding attention. They are individuals and at the same time symbols. The objects become metaphors for life, death, resurrection, and other levels of abstraction.". Seller Inventory # 112725

About this Item: Verona, Italy: Peliti Associati, 1998. Hardcover. Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. Unpaginated. Published in 1998. The artist/photographer's second collection. One of the most beautiful art photography books of our time. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only in Italian and English versions. This is the Italian-language version. It is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Donatello Pistocchio and Fulvio Forleo: Oversize-volume format. Black cloth boards with gilt titles embossed on cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Luis Gonzalez Palma. Afterword Essay by Laura Leonelli. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper by EBS in Verona, Italy to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with white titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Luis Gonzalez Palma's "Il Silenzio dei Maya". All-"bleed" photographic reproductions and doublespreads. The Latin-American artist/photographer has gained enormous and well-deserved international recognition over the past decade for his portraits that are rich with the symbolism of indigenous myth and culture, Catholicism and humanity. The figures that inhabit Gonzalez Palma's mythic world (angels, devils, hybrid creatures, and enigmatic characters) transcend time and place, suggesting that mysticism and beauty are his ultimate subject matter. "Luis Gonzalez Palma is best-known for his strange, quiet portraits of the Mayan and Mestizo women in his native Guatemala. There is a contradictory quality to many of these portraits. The subjects are women who belong to cultures that have been marginalized yet the photographs have a distinctly European, even Victorian, appearance. Even when dressed in their native clothing, the subjects are often posed in a way that negates their native-ness. Despite that, the faces of the subjects often seem to be challenging the viewer, as if they're proclaiming their refusal to disappear totally. His body of work has been described as existing on both 'the bright and dark sides of Reason'. I'm not at all sure what that means, but it seems somehow appropriate. It's clear Gonzalez Palma's photography extends into the realm of metaphor. There is more to his photographs than what appears in his photographs" (Greg Fallis). "Gonzalez Palma's images unfold with increasing significance, resulting in an underlying sense of tension and foreboding that is only slightly eased by their sheer loveliness" (A. D. Miller). An absolute "must-have" title for Luis Gonzalez Palma collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in blue ink-pen on the half-title page by Luis Gonzalez Palma. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary art photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only other signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: The other copy is also from us. A rare signed copy thus. 70 plates. One of the finest Latin-American artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy.
