Retrospective collection of photographs. Now considered a contemporary art photography classic. The First Limited Edition of 5000 copies.

White cloth boards with titles embossed in white on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and text by Philip-Lorca DiCorcia. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper by EBS in Verona, Italy to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published to coincide with the major retrospective exhibition of the artist/photographer's work in New York City in 2003. Presents Philip-Lorca DiCorcia's "A Storybook Life". Some of the artist/photographer's finest, most representative, and most influential work, culled from a highly productive period of over 20 years. "The disparate photographs assembled here were made over the course of twenty years. None of them were originally intended to be used in this book. By ordering and shaping them, I tried to investigate the possibilities of narrative both within a single image and especially in relation to the other photographs: An attempt to discover the possibilities of meaning in the interaction of seemingly unrelated images in the hope that content can constantly mutate according to both the external and internal condition of the viewer but remain meaningful because of its inherent but latent content. The conscious and subconscious decisions made in editing the photographs is the real work of 'A Storybook Life' " (Philip-Lorca DiCorcia). An absolute "must-have" title for Philip-Lorca DiCorcia collectors. This copy is one of the First Limited Edition, indicated as such on the Back Limitation Page, and it is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Philip-Lorca DiCorcia. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. DiCorcia did NOT sign most copies of the book. This title is a great art photography book. This is one of very few such signed copies of the Limited Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Many copies available online are subsequent printings. A rare signed copy thus. 75 color plates. One of the most important and most influential artist/photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PHILIP-LORCA DICORCIA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 1931885230. $200.00
