Pictorial hard boards with copper cloth overboards and titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by the Who's Who of contemporary Latin-American photography. You name him or her, he or she is in this book. Curated with text by Wim Melis. Text by various other expert/specialists. Printed on archival stock paper in Amsterdam, The Netherlands to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the Nooderlicht Photography Festival, which was held in various venues, in 2002. Presents "Mundos Creados", the ground-breaking European retrospective festival on contemporary Latin-American art photography. Designed as a handy reference guide to its subject, Wim Melis divides his book into two parts: "Mundos Creados I" and "Mundos Creados II", with an extended Epilogue. The exhibition itself was presented into four parts, as a "quadrivium", to make the rich subject more easily digestible. Collectively, they capture the vitality, diversity, and sheer beauty of contemporary Latin-American art photography. Luis Gonzalez Palma opens "Mundos Creados I". So many names are not yet familiar to most viewers, but their work speaks for itself. They will astonish, surprise, and delight. Of course, the works of Graciela Iturbide, Flor Garduno, Mario Cravo Neto, and Miguel Rio Branco are also here, in all their transcendent beauty and power. An indispensable eye-opener. 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. The latter opens "Mundos Creados I", a distinct honor. This title is a contemporary photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Exhibition Monograph available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Hundreds of plates. Some of the greatest living artist/photographers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LUIS GONZALEZ PALMA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
