Item Description: Chicago, IL: Schneider-Bluhm-Loeb Gallery, 1993. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 10 pages. Published in 1993. Rare Luis Gonzalez Palma collectible item. Exhibition Catalog. One of the earliest catalogs ever published on the artist/photographer. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run of 500 copies as a softcover original only. The Catalog is now scarce. An austerely elegant production by Luis Gonzalez Palma: Small-size volume format. Glossy pictorial softcovers, as issued. Photographs by Luis Gonzalez Palma. The artist/photographer interspersed his work with poems by Francisco Najera, which are presented in both the Spanish original and English translation by Joan Lindgren. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Chicago to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition at the Schneider-Blum-Loeb Gallery in 1993, a "follow-up" to his debut 1992 exhibition. Presents "Luis Gonzalez Palma". Gonzalez Palma, now based in Argentina, 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. Regarded by the Nobel Laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez as the finest Latin-American photographer of his generation, the late great writer used "La Rosa" (duotone with oil varnish) for the DJ cover of his novel, "Of Love And Other Demons". Gonzalez Palma's photograph of a woman garlanded with a skull, toned and white roses on her hair is a striking image that, by itself, captures what he is trying to say about the paradox of Latin America: A continent of ineffable beauty and unspeakable pain at the same time. An absolute "must-have" title for Luis Gonzalez Palma collectors. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the Exhibition Catalog available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. 5 full-page color plates. One of the finest Latin-American artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LUIS GONZALEZ PALMA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). no.

Item Description: EUNSA, 2016. Book Condition: Nuevo. A través de su trabajo, González Palma experimenta con las soluciones técnicas y formales de la fotografía, en una redefinición de los límites entre fotografía y pintura, influenciado por su formación como arquitecto y su acercamiento a la pintura religiosa, que generó también un interés por la abstracción. En su obra podemos ver una serie de motivos recurrentes, entre los que destacan la importancia de la belleza, la reflexión sobre el poder y el concepto de imagen y su percepción por los demás. Plantea una reflexión sobre la mirada, reflejo de cómo vemos al otro y de cómo nos vemos a nosotros mismos, vinculada con la conciencia de no ser visto, y con el desasosiego que eso causa. A través de su obra vemos una evolución desde conceptos vinculados a la identidad y la memoria hasta la convivencia de la abstracción y la figuración, porque para él ambas tienen un mismo fin, entender y dar sentido a la imagen, otra vez en relación a la mirada y a la captación no sólo del individuo, sino de la condición humana. Y en esta idea se enmarca la importancia que el retrato tiene en su trabajo, muchas veces en relación con soluciones formales y con el espectador, que lo contempla sin intermediarios.

Item Description: Duluth, MN: Tweed Museum of Art, 2009. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 40 pages. Published in 2009. Retrospective collection of photographs. Limited Edition of 2000 copies which sold out shortly after publication. The Limited Edition is now scarce. An austerely elegant production by Topher McCulloch: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Luis Gonzalez Palma. Text by Ken Bloom and other contributors. Gonzalez Palma gives a rare Interview conducted by Patricia Briggs, which appears in this edition only. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held at the Tweed Museum of Art Minnesota from October 9, 2009 through January 10, 2010. Presents Luis Gonzalez Palma's "A Silent Unity of Gazes". Now-iconic images, beautifully juxtaposed with all-new work, most of which appear in published form for the very first time. The theme of the exhibition is, by now, quite familiar: Luis Gonzalez Palma's treatment of the portrait as The Gaze (every subject looks at the camera in a certain way, regardless of who the photographer is, which gaze the camera captures as an integral aspect of the final image) has resulted in some of the most moving, "New Romantic" images of our time. The images are about the paradoxical co-existence and transformation of Latin-American pain and beauty in Gonzalez Palma's art. At the same time, they have a universal significance that very few contemporary art or photography possesses with such poise and grace. The Gaze enables Gonzalez Palma to transcend the inherent voyeurism of photography, an artistic strategy that preserves the dignity of his subjects and makes both their pain and beauty apparent but non-voyeuristic. The "gaze effect" is achieved simply: The images are toned and layered except for the eyes, whose stark whiteness is retained. Gonzalez Palma's new work explores his Latin-American Romanticism further, mining such timeless subjects as the passage of time, the dream-like character of memory, and the fundamentally subjective nature of reality. Gonzalez Palma continues to enhance his photographs through layering, using special photographic papers, varnish, Kodalith, gold leaf embedded in resin, and other techniques that require his "hand-made", artisanal intervention. An absolute "must-have" title for Luis Gonzalez Palma collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Luis Gonzalez Palma. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Limited Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 25 plates. One of the finest Latin-American artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LUIS GONZALEZ PALMA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1889523364.

The museum's reach is ambitiously global: Its Permanent Collection includes work by virtually every major or emergent artist and photographer from all over the world, with emphasis on the often-neglected areas of Asia, Africa, and Latin America. As such, many of the names will not be familiar to most viewers, but their art will speak for itself. Some, like Kara Walker and Seydou Keita, are established, if still controversial, names.

Item Description: Chicago, IL: Stephen Daiter Gallery, 1989. Soft cover. Book Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 1 pages. Published in 1989. Rare Luis Gonzalez Palma collectible item. A pristine copy of the Souvenir Poster of the photographer's very first one-man show in the United States. Published in a small and limited print run of 500 copies only. Poster size is 18 X 24 inches. It is eminently suitable for framing. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Chicago, Illinois to the highest standards. Published on the occasion of the artist/photographer's inaugural exhibition in the United States held at The Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago in 1989. Presents Luis Gonzalez Palma's "La Luna, 1989". One of his most iconic images and earliest masterpieces. Shows a woman with a carved crescent moon tied around her neck, virtually covering her face. The poetic and erotic associations of the Moon with Woman are universal. As beautiful as the image is, Gonzalez Palma is also alluding to its more oppressive side in the larger context of Latin-American post-colonial, "macho" culture and society, where women, while outnumbering men, continue to be treated as though they were a minority, and remain subject to the obsolete standards of morality that a male-dominated, colonialist society seeks to perpetuate. The Guatemalan artist/photographer is now regarded as one of the most brilliant Latin-American artist/photographers of our time, whose work is widely represented and well-known throughout the world.

Item Description: Buenos Aires, Argentina: La Azotea Editorial Fotografica, 1993. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 82 pages. Published in 1993. The artist/photographer's breakthrough debut collection. One of the most sensational photographic debuts of the last decade of the 20th century. The First Edition. Published in a small and limited print run of 1000 copies that sold out shortly after publication. The First Edition is now rare. A stunningly beautiful production by Luis Gonzalez Palma: Oversize-volume format. Glossy pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. The photograph of the boy on the cover ("Retrato del Nino") has become one of Gonzalez Palma's iconic images. Photographs by Luis Gonzalez Palma. Text by Maria Cristina Orive with an accompanying felicitous translation in English. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Buenos Aires, Argentina to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents "Luis Gonzalez Palma". His ground-breaking and breathtakingly beautiful first collection. Luis Gonzalez Palma, now based in Argentina, 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. "The feverish productivity of Luis Gonzalez Palma is the fruit of an active, intense personality, curious about all forms of contemporary creation; to the same extent, it is the fruit of a ritual art where working on the transformation of that which is natural is fundamental to the aesthetic outcome" (Introduction). Regarded by the Nobel Laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez as among the finest Latin-American photographer of his generation, the late great writer used "La Rosa" (duotone with oil varnish) for the DJ cover of his novel, "Of Love And Other Demons" (it was also used as the cover image of the Dutch Edition of Garcia Marquez's masterpiece, "One Hundred Years of Solitude"). Gonzalez Palma's photograph of a woman garlanded with a skull, toned and white roses on her hair is a striking image that, by itself, captures what he is trying to say about the paradox of Latin America: A continent of ineffable beauty and unspeakable pain at the same time. "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). "I manipulate in order to emphasize the heart-rending" (Luis Gonzalez Palma). An absolute "must-have" title for Luis Gonzalez Palma collectors. This title is a contemporary art photography classic. This is one of very few copies of the First Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. 32 color, 10 duotone plates. One of the finest Latin-American artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy.

Item Description: San Francisco, CA: Chronicle Books, 2003. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 150 pages. Published in 2003. Retrospective collection of photographs on subject. One of the most beautiful photography books of its kind ever published. 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 that sold out upon publication. The First Edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Peter Fetterman and Scott Rivera: Small-size volume format. Orange cloth boards with photographic reproduction pasted in front and white titles embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by various contributors, a Who's Who of 20th-century and contemporary photography. Introduction by Peter Fetterman. Essay by the legendary Hollywood actor and collector Whoopi Goldberg. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper to the highest standards. Publisher's sleeve intact. Without DJ, as issued. Presents "Woman: A Celebration". A gem. Every single portrait in this book is a beauty: "A photographic homage to Woman in all her glorious diversity and mystery. From a rare image of a grinning Greta Garbo to the direct gaze of a young Guatemalan woman, 'Woman' revels in the breadth of the human experience, with the feted and the nameless shoulder-to-shoulder. The work of dozens of immortal photographers - Henri Cartier-Bresson, Elliott Erwitt, Julia Margaret Cameron, Willy Ronis, Ruth Orkin, and many more - fills this volume. These photographs embody the many moods of their subjects in a breadth of photographic styles, from sepia-tinged Pictorialism to guilelessly Modern. A book as captivating as its focus, this small but substantial package is virtually a history of the photographic medium vis-a-vis its timeless subject" (Publisher's blurb). The "direct gaze of a young Guatemalan woman" is otherwise known as "La Rosa" ("The Rose"), Luis Gonzalez Palma's single greatest portrait. Like another great artist/photographer/lover of his subject, he can honestly say: "My medium is Woman" (Alfred Stieglitz). An absolute "must-have" title for Luis Gonzalez Palma and photography book collectors. This copy is very prominently, uniquely, and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on his Contribution ("La Rosa", Plate #65) by Luis Gonzalez Palma. It is signed directly on the page itself (right underneath the plate, as he would have signed an original print), not on a tipped-in page. It is Gonzalez Palma's single greatest portrait. This title is a photography book classic. As far as we know, this is the only such 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: This signed copy comes directly from Luis Gonzalez Palma's Chicago gallery. The First Edition sold out upon publication. ALL other copies available online are subsequent printings. A rare signed copy thus. 120 black-and-white and color plates. Some of the greatest photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LUIS GONZALEZ PALMA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0811840980.

Item Description: Chicago, IL: Stephen Daiter Gallery, 1989. Soft cover. Book Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 1 pages. Published in 1989. Rare Luis Gonzalez Palma collectible item. A pristine copy of the Souvenir Poster of the photographer's very first one-man show in the United States, signed by Luis Gonzalez Palma. Published in a small and limited print run of 500 copies only. Poster size is 18 X 24 inches. It is eminently suitable for framing. Printed on thick coated stock paper in Chicago, Illinois to the highest standards. Published on the occasion of the artist/photographer's inaugural exhibition in the United States held at The Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago in 1989. Presents Luis Gonzalez Palma's "La Luna, 1989". One of his most iconic images and earliest masterpieces. Shows a woman with a carved crescent-moon tied around her neck virtually covering her face. The poetic and erotic associations of the Moon with Woman are universal. As beautiful as the image is, Gonzalez Palma is also alluding to its more oppressive side in the larger context of Latin-American post-colonial, "macho" culture and society, where women, while outnumbering men, continue to be treated as though they were a minority, and remain subject to the obsolete standards of morality that a male-dominated, colonialist society seeks to perpetuate. The Guatemalan artist/photographer is now regarded as one of the most brilliant Latin-American artist/photographers of our time, whose work is widely represented and well-known throughout the world. The late Nobel Laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez used another image, "La Rosa", for the cover of his great novel, "Of Love And Other Demons". "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).

Item Description: Peliti Associati, Photo&Co, Milano (Milan), 1998. Hardcover. Book 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.". Bookseller Inventory # 112725

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).

Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the Nooderlicht Photography Festival, which was held in various venues, in 2002. Presents "Mundos Creados". The ground-breaking European retrospective festival on contemporary Latin-American art photography. Produced as a handy reference guide to its subject, Wim Melis divides his book into two parts: "Mundos Creados I" and "Mundos Creados II", with an extended Epilogue. The exhibition itself was divided into four parts, as a "quadrivium", to make the rich subject more easily digestible. Collectively, they capture the vitality, diversity, and sheer beauty of contemporary Latin-American art photography. Luis Gonzalez Palma opens "Mundos Creados I". So many names are not yet familiar to most viewers, but their work speaks for itself. They will astonish, surprise, and delight.

He has said, "I live in a country where there is mysticism and violence at the same time--where you are enjoying nature and the helicopters are flying overhead to bomb some region, where you know that as you are working, someone is being killed or someone is being baptized."

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 print run as a hardcover original only in Italian and English versions. This is the English-language version, which was produced in a much smaller print run.

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 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 such 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 English-language Verion had a tiny print run compared to the Italian-Language Version. A rare signed copy thus. 70 plates. One of the finest Latin-American artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LUIS GONZALEZ PALMA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 8885121497. Signed by Author.
