Presents "Mario Algaze: Portfolio Latino Americano 1974-1996". Some of the finest and most representative images of his beloved homeland: Images to take your breath away. "Showcases the unique genius of photographer Mario Algaze, whose deep appreciation and understanding of the nuances of light - sunlight pouring in through church windows, illuminating a pair of teacups on a cafe table, casting late-afternoon shadows on a cobblestoned street - is both legendary and rare" (Publisher's blurb). "There is a sense of something else, of something more: A world evolving, a lover scorned, a crime of passion about to be committed, in Mario Algaze's black-and-white photographs. Considered one of the masters of the art, he manages to capture evocative scenes that live beyond the images frozen by his camera" (Miami Herald). An absolute "must-have" title for Mario Algaze collectors. This title is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the First Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Please note: This is another one of Algaze's most elusive titles. A rare copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with duotone plates. One of the finest Latin-American photographers of our time. A fine copy.
