Presents, in a Limited Edition collectible format, Mario Algaze's "Portfolio". Selected and edited by the artist/photographer from a lifetime of work and achievement: Photographs, beautifully reproduced, that will take your breath away. "Algaze's mix of intimacy and formality is so delicately balanced it would be thrilling were it not so cool" (Vince Aletti, The New Yorker Magazine). "Algaze has the soul of a storyteller, and he seeks what he terms 'profundidad', the depth of human emotion. His photographs are as much about the artist's own search for the self as they are about the places and people that he photographs. They reveal inner states of mind and simultaneously tell stories about endurance, ancient traditions, and their intersection with contemporary life" (The Wall Street Journal). An absolute "must-have" title for Mario Algaze collectors. This is a copy of the Limited Edition, and it is very boldly and beautifully signed in pencil on the flyleaf by Mario Algaze. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary art photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the Limited Edition available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Algaze did NOT sign most copies of the book. A rare signed copy thus. 66 full-page, black-and-white plates. One of the finest Latin-American photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER MARIO ALGAZE TITLE IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN B007JRVEQ6. $200.00
