Montparnasse. Photographs by Andreas Gursky. Text by Hans Irrek with interview by Irrek and Ursula Trübenbach. Concept by Irrek and Gursky. Design by Kühle and Mozer. Portikus/Oktagon Verlag, Stuttgart/Frankfurt am Main, 1995. Gray card box containing 2 small softbound books: 40 pp. 'Image' book & 32 pp. 'Text' book (both 9 1/2 x 10 1/2 in.); 1 loose color reproduction (10 1/4 x 18 3/4 in.) in card portfolio printed recto & verso (with names of occupants). 30 color & 10 black-and-white photographs.



A key work in the Dusseldorf School canon! "By the very nature of his work Gursky is primarily a gallery artist [as an exhibition print, Montparnasse was printed over 13 ft--4 m.--long!], but he has made one body of work that succeeds as a photobook whilst still replicating the essential qualities of his vision."--Parr and Badger

"Gursky’s work sets forth a commanding image of contemporary reality, which may seduce or repel us—or both at once. In any case, his photographs do not so much mirror as embody this gorgeous, cold-hearted spectacle. It is thanks to the artfulness of Gursky’s fictions that we recognize his world as our own."

Books, folio and print are Fine+; box Near Fine with some light scuffing and a couple of tiny nicks along edges; two corners of box cover split vertically ( one corner with faint tape residue from attempted repair.)
