Daiter, Stephen (Editor/Publisher); Hujar, Peter (Photographer) & Goldin, Nan (Contributor). PETER HUJAR: INTIMATE SURVEY. Chicago, IL: Stephen Daiter Gallery, 1999. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 11 pages. As New.

Landmark Exhibition Catalog. The first and only edition. Published in a tiny print run as a softcover original only. There is no ISBN. The Exhibition Catalog is now rare. An austerely elegant production by The Stephen Daiter Gallery: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover, as issued. Photographs by Peter Hujar. Preface/Remembrance by Nan Goldin, which appears in this edition only. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name held at The Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago from March 19 through April 23, 1999. Presents "Peter Hujar: Intimate Survey". A selection of the photographer's most important and beautiful portraits, which showcase both the subtlety and simplicity of his work. Some of them appear in published form for the very first time in this gem. His male nude photographs, in particular, have become posthumously celebrated for this reason. His photographs of animals have a rare empathy with their subject, drawing the viewer in and prompting Hujar's admirers to say that they are really either self-portraits (that he saw himself being as vulnerable as the animals) or a continuation of his erotic work (that he saw animals as sensual subjects). Includes a version of the still-controversial portrait, "Bruce de Saint Croix, 1976", which had not appeared in published form before, and is part of a ground-breaking triptych that Peter Hujar took of the model. An absolute "must-have" title for Peter Hujar collectors. This Exhibition Catalog is now collectible. It is neither a full-fledged book nor a monograph, but it is a pioneering landmark publication for Hujar completists, is very beautifully produced, and comes with a Note from Nan Goldin that appears in this Catalog only. 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. A rare copy thus. 11 plates. One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine copy. . $40.00
