Published on the occasion of the landmark retrospective exhibition of the same name held at the Galleria Millan Sao Paulo in 2015. Presents German Lorca's "Travessias/Crossings". Some of the finest, most beautiful, and representative images by the great Brazilian artist/photographer, taken between 1940 and 1990, a productive fifty-year career for a figure whose spare and meticulous compositions allude to both recent Modernist painting and photography with a dramatic Latin-American inflection. "Provides proof of the coherence of a perception that adopts but a few references - Morandi, Mondrian, Geraldo de Barros - and synthesizes a virtuosic trajectory in the history of Brazilian photography. Emblematic and inspiring images that gather together ideas, cause shapes to take on bodily form, bring spaces into the real world, and experiences that reflect his strong sense of intuition based on freedom and experimentation" (Ruben Fernandes). An absolute "must-have" title for German Lorca collectors. This Retrospective Exhibition Monograph is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with tritone plates. One of the greatest Latin-American artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. . $50.00
