About This Item

Chicago, IL: Stephen Daiter Gallery, 2012. First Edition. First Printing.. Softcover. Fine/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. Chicago, IL: Stephen Daiter Gallery, 2012. Softcover. Fine/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 74 pages. Exhibition Catalog. One of the most important exhibition catalogs on its subject in our time. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. The Exhibition Catalog is now scarce. A brilliant production by Adam Holtzman: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and text by Samantha Appleton, Vincent Cianni, Ashley Gilbertson, and Stephanie Sinclair. 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 Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago in 2012. Presents "Collateral Damage: The Human Face of War". Gripping images of war and its even more affecting aftermath. "Whether it is Vincent Cianni's black-and-white portraits of gay soldiers under the contradictory and compromised reign of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell', Stephanie Sinclair's searing color scenes of Afghan women who have taken violence unto themselves and committed acts of self-immolation, or Samantha Appleton's war-zone shots, such as a jihadi in Iraq praying alone inside the walls of a bombed-out house, this powerful show fills in the picture of the realities of war beyond the battles. Collateral damage means much more than civilian casualties and properties destroyed. It is the effect of war on individuals that will last lifetimes" (Michael Weinstein) . The book features a stunning multi-panel foldout of Ashley Gilbertson's panoramic photographs of empty rooms in American suburbia. They are the bedrooms of dead young American soldiers, in the homes where they were born and grew up, left "as is" by their grieving parents: An 18-year-old man's diplomas, awards, and trophies neatly and proudly on display. Another bedroom overflowing with yet another dead 18-year-old's regalia, sports posters, and girlie pin-ups, emblems of American adolescence and virility. A woman-soldier's room decorated with lush house plants. In a way that only photographs can evoke, they are about absence and presence at the same time: The young lives snuffed out and gone, their "human remains" left behind, helping keep their memory alive. An absolute "must-have" title for Samantha Appleton, Vincent Cianni, Ashley Gilbertson, and Stephanie Sinclair collectors. <b><i> This title is a contemporary art photography classic. This is one of few copies of the Exhibition Catalog still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have serious flaws. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce copy thus. </b></i> Lavishly illustrated with black-and-white and color plates. Four of the most brilliant American photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO PETER VAN AGTMAEL AND RYAN SPENCER REED TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0985952903.
