In pictorial DJ with black titles on the spine, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held at the Charles A. Hartman Fine Art Gallery in 2011. Presents Corey Arnold's movingly, evocatively, and stunningly beautiful photographs of life at sea. "Having survived several seasons afloat these icy and unforgiving waters, we are lucky that Arnold has taken time to document his artistic impressions of this rare lifestyle and extended us a vicarious glimpse" (Publisher's blurb). A fisherman by profession, Corey Arnold is the contemporary embodiment of what it means to be The Real Thing. His photographs of perilous "fish-work", instead of yet another post-modern "concept"-work, are about life as something large, worthwhile, and true. Arnold's photographic work has been exhibited worldwide and appeared in Juxtapoz Photo, Esquire, The Sunday Telegraph, Rolling Stone, Outside, and The Paris Review. As Juxtapoz Photo points out, it is part of a New Movement in photography towards "intriguing freshness and outsider perspectives" through "provocative lenswork, ground-breaking camera angles, intense and often irreverent subject matter, moody and vibrant colors, and intimate portraiture". That is to say, it aims to go beyond the self-absorption, sterility, and emptiness that have characterized post-modern photography. An absolute "must-have" title for Corey Arnold collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the half-title page by Corey Arnold. This title sold out quickly, is now in subsequent printing, and highly collectible. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Limited Edition still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. 47 color plates. One of the most brilliant living photographers. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE CALSO OTHER COREY ARNOLD TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1590053060. $150.00
