Palma, Luis Gonzalez (Artist/Photographer); Sturges, Jock; Tenneson, Joyce & Other Contributors. VISIONS OF ANGELS: 35 PHOTOGRAPHERS SHARE THEIR IMAGES. New York City, NY: Stewart, Tabori & Chang, 1998. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. Unpaginated. Fine/Fine.

Collection of angelic images. One of the most beautiful art photography books of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a very small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents some of the most evocative, spiritual, and even erotic images of angels in our time. Each of the thirty-five celebrated photographers was asked to present their most personal vision of angels, with stunning and sublime results. "Images of angels have marched for centuries in the footsteps of the winged Renaissance and cherubic Victorian idealizations of angels. Bloncourt and Engelmann open new territory with fresh interpretations of these divine messengers by photographers like Carolyn Jones and Jerry Uelsmann. The photography alone would make 'Visions of Angels' a worthy tome, but the authors also juxtapose each image with the names of several different angels and their role in the cosmic order, teasing you to interpret each work in different ways. This is one book you won't leaf through casually once and tuck away on your bookshelf. It will have you captivated for hours as you ponder these earthly manifestations of heavenly creatures" (Brian Patterson). Luis Gonzalez Palma has two contributions, and they are among his most iconic images: "El Angel, 1989" and "Jaula De Ternura, 1993". Other contributors are a Who's Who of contemporary art photography: Marcia Lippman, Blake Little, Josephine Sacabo, Jock Sturges, and Joyce Tenneson, among many others. An absolute "must-have" title for Luis Gonzalez Palma and contemporary art photography collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on his Contribution by Luis Gonzalez Palma. This title is an art photography book classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crsip, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with duotone and color plates. Some of the greatest living artist/photographers. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LUIS GONZALEZ PALMA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
