Artist Book. The 84th 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 Jim Goldberg. Printed on pristine-white, archival stock paper to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Jim Goldberg's "Polaroids From Haiti". His very first contribution to the One Picture Book Series. "Taken during a week in March of 2013, they depict Haitians dealing with their everyday struggles. Goldberg, who describes himself as a 'documentary storyteller', spent his time travelling throughout the country listening to and photographing Haitian life. The resulting images reflect the continuing challenges and undying spirit of this impoverished country, when the 2010 earthquake is still reverberating from every surface" (Publisher's blurb). Despite their grim subject (which the title elides by ironically suggesting holiday snapshots from a tourist spot), Goldberg's images are quietly moving and never condescending. An absolute "must-have" title for Jim Goldberg collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such in pencil on the Back Limitation Page. It comes with an original Polaroid print that is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on verso by Jim Goldberg. This title is a contemporary photography book classic. This is one of very few copies still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. 11 color plates, 1 original Polaroid print. One of the greatest living photographers. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ONE PICTURE BOOK AND JIM GOLDBERG TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
