About This Item

Tucson, AZ: Nazraeli Press, 2012. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. Tucson, AZ: Nazraeli Press, 2012. Hardcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 16 pages. Artist Book. The 76th title in the now-legendary "One Picture Book" Series by Nazraeli Press, one of the most superb ongoing projects of contemporary art photography. Limited Edition of 500 numbered and signed copies. Accompanied by one tipped-in, original print by the artist/photographer (hence the Series' name) . An elegant production by Chris Pichler: Small-size volume format. Titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Leon Borensztein. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Leon Borensztein's "Portraits II". His first and only contribution to the One Picture Book Series, a continuation of his seminal "American Portraits 1979-1989" collection. "After emigrating to the United States from Poland, Leon Borensztein took a fly-by-night job as a traveling portrait photographer, visiting homes and businesses across the country and making portraits for working-class clientele in the style of the Sears Portrait Studios. During these sessions, Borensztein would set up a generic backdrop behind the subject, while moving the camera back far enough so that the camera captured glimpses of the subjects' personal spaces or belongings. The resulting body of work provides a rich sociological document. Individually, these are some of the most compelling and touching portraits of their time" (Publisher's blurb) . An absolute "must-have" title for Leon Borensztein collectors. <b><i> This is a copy of the Limited Edition, indicated/numbered as such in pencil on the Back Limitation Page. It comes with an original print that is very prominently and beautifully signed in pencil on verso by Leon Borensztein. This title is a contemporary art photography classic. This is one of few copies of the Limited Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: The remaining copies from the publisher command $100. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce signed copy thus. </b></i> 13 plates, 1 original print. One of the most brilliant American artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ONE PICTURE BOOK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1590053591.
