Published on the occasion of the very first exhibition by the Guatemalan artist/photographer held at the Landmark Arts: The Galleries of Texas in 1999. Presents Luis Gonzalez Palma's "Silence of The Gaze". Some of the most beautiful images taken by one of the most brilliant Latin-American artist/photographers of our time. The exhibition's title, "Silence of The Gaze", is taken from his second book, which was published in both English and Italian ("Il Silenzio dei Maya") by his Italian publisher. The images, meticulously enhanced with oil varnish, are uniquely and movingly his own. They speak, transcendently, of the humanity and immortality of his subjects, who have gone through every imaginable suffering, have endured, and have prevailed. "La Rosa", one of his most celebrated images, was used by the great Gabriel Garcia Marquez for the DJ cover of his novel, "Of Love And Other Demons": Gonzalez Palma's toned photograph of a woman garlanded with a skull and white flowers on her head is a striking image that, by itself, captures what he is trying to say about the paradox of Latin America: A continent of ineffable beauty and unspeakable pain. An absolute "must-have" title for Luiz Gonzalez Palma collectors. This title is now collectible. 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 beauty. A rare copy thus. One of the finest Latin-American artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER LUIS GONZALEZ PALMA TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0965080862. $30.00
