Item Description: Zürich - Berlin - New York, Scalo, 2002. Cross-large folio ( 28.7 x 43.1 cm). Original canvas with illustrated cover. 175 (+1) pages with numerous full-page photographic illustrations. Nice and very nice clean copy. Only the protective cover with the smallest marginal edges. -- Quer-Groß-Folio28,7 x 43,1 cm). Originalleinwand mit illustriertem Originalumschlag. 175 (+1) Seiten mit zahlreichen ganzseitigen photographischen Abbildungen. Schönes und sehr schön sauberes Exemplar. Nur der Schutzumschlag mit geringsten Randbestoßungen. This is number 5 of 60 copies of the preferential edition with signature by Bill Henson on the front page. The photographs, dipped in the darkness, echo and reflect the mostly melancholy moods of even childish youth, already young, with a delicate suburban lostness. Snapshot-lit sceneries of suburban or industrial areas underline the modern gloominess of this senseless generation, but they create an almost poetic contrast in light-colored scenes of heaven, staged here and there. -- Vorliegend Nummer 5 von 60 Exemplaren der Vorzugsausgabe mit Signatur von Bill Henson auf dem Vortitel. - Die in Dunkelheit getauchten Photographien belauschen und reflektieren die meist melancholischen Stimmungen noch kindlicher, schon früh gezeichneter Jugendlicher mit einer zarten suburbanen Verlorenheit. Snapshothaft beleuchtete Szenerien vorstädtischer oder industrieländlicher Gegenden unterstreichen die moderne Tristesse dieser sinnentleerten Generation, setzen aber durch hier und da inszenierte Himmelsflecken lichtfarblich einen nahezu poetischen Kontrast.

Item Description: Zurich, Switzerland: Scalo Publishers, 2002. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 200 pages. Published in 2002. Landmark collection of nude-cum-landscape color photographs. One of the greatest art photography books of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. A stunningly beautiful production by Bill Henson, Martin Jaeggi, and Walter Keller: Oversize-volume format. Black cloth boards with black titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs by Bill Henson. Contribution by the great avant-garde American writer Dennis Cooper. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper by Steidl in Gottingen, Germany to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Bill Henson's "Lux Et Nox". Masterpiece. A sequence of photographs of naked couples making love brilliantly juxtaposed with urban nighttime landscapes (the "lux"/light of the title refers to photography itself). The metaphor of night - for sex and intimacy as well as loneliness and desolation - endows the sequence with a "life-and-death" significance that is very rarely seen in photography. You will not restlessly flip through but carefully linger over each page (the book's design also makes sure that you do). The sequence (which is perfect) is poetic rather than "playful", and its contemplative effect is powerful as such. "Bill Henson is a passionate and visionary explorer of twilight zones, of the ambiguous spaces that exist between day and night, nature and civilization, youth and adulthood, male and female. Continue the tradition of Romantic literature and painting in our post-Industrial Age. The rich chiaroscuro, the oscillating light, and the masterful composition of his photographs map enigmatic states that escape rationalism's iron grip" (Dennis Cooper). Well, yes, Bill Henson's night-universe is more mythical than real. But there is nothing polemical much less political ("reason versus emotion", "Nature versus Culture") about his art, not in the terms that Dennis Cooper proposes. That Henson used perfectly ordinary-looking, "relatable" kid-models (instead of Miss Universe and Physique types) makes his self-created universe more, not less, otherworldly, unattainable, and desirable. What do poets (and psychologists) say about desire? We desire what we see everyday. For better or for worse, some of these things are the products of the post-industrial, global consumerism that Cooper opposes. Bill Henson's work is in the Permanent Collection of the Bibliotheque Nationale Paris, the Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum New York, and the Museum of Modern Art. Together with Trent Parke, he has put Australia on the map as a vital center of art photography, that is to say, of the most serious and ambitious contemporary art itself, which has become more, not less, photographically-based. An absolute "must-have" title for Bill Henson collectors. This title is a great art photography book. This is one of very few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online command as much as $2500 even though many of them have major flaws. A rare copy thus. 125 color plates. One of the greatest artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO TRENT PARKE TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 3908247551. no. Bookseller Inventory # 15411
