About This Item

Chicago, IL: Stephen Daiter Gallery, 2017. First Edition. First Printing.. Softcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. Chicago, IL: Stephen Daiter Gallery, 2017. Softcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 20 pages. Exhibition Catalog. One of the most beautiful catalogs ever published on the photographic art and achievement of Susan Meiselas' "Nicaragua" sequence of images. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. There is no ISBN. The Exhibition Catalog is now scarce. A brilliant production by Stephen Daiter Gallery: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial softcovers with photographic reproductions on the front and back covers, as issued. Photographs by Susan Meiselas: Eighteen 20 X 30 chromogenic prints from "Nicaragua". Text Excerpts by three Nicaraguan victims of the Anastasio Somoza Regime. Printed on pristine-white, glossy stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. The reproduction quality is exemplary in every respect. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held at the Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago from May 5 through July 29, 2017. Re-presents Susan Meiselas' "Nicaragua: '78-79". A dazzling and profoundly moving selection of the photographer's near-cinematic coverage of the Nicaraguan Revolution: Full-page color photographs that tell their compelling and dramatic story solely through images. "An extraordinary narrative of a nation in turmoil. Traces the evolution of the popular resistance that led to the insurrection, culminating with the triumph of the Sandinista Revolution in 1979" (Publisher's blurb). A graduate of Harvard University, Susan Meiselas taught at various public schools before joining The Magnum Agency in 1976. She burst into national and international prominence with her very first book, "Carnival Strippers", a collection of black-and-white photographs of professional strippers in New England states. Her shift to color represents an achievement of the first rank in the history of photojournalism. Indeed, very few have used color to capture spontaneous events with such sensitivity, beauty, and overwhelming power: "Color photographs of this kind inevitably give way to gore or to the aestheticization of violence. Here, instead, we have enormous control, a sense of the everyday, and a vitality rooted in an active community" (John Berger). An absolute "must-have" title for Susan Meiselas collectors. <b><i> This title is a contemporary art photography classic. 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. Please note: This is a copy of the Exhibition Catalog, which presents eighteen 20 X 30 chromogenic prints from Susan Meiselas' "Nicaragua" sequence. Should NOT be confused with the book of the same title. Its brilliant reproductions are superior in terms of production values to the original book, making it collectible for "Nicaragua" completists. A scarce copy thus. </b></i> 18 color plates. "Nicaragua" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the most brilliant photographers of our time. A fine copy.
