Welcome to photo-eye Auctions!
The proverbial boat has come in here at photo-eye Auctions! We are thrilled to offer one of the more extraordinary lots in the almost ten year history of photo-eye Auctions: All four of William Klein's seminal 'city books'—New York, Rome, Tokyo & Moscow—ALL SIGNED! In a review of the recent Tate Modern exhibition "Klein + Moriyama: New York Tokyo Film Photography" on the blog 1000 Words, Rachel Ridge writes, "There is an inherent urgency about Klein's practice that speaks to some kind of post war hysteria... A man on a manic quest for his own truth and always trying to break down the façade... Laying things as bare as he can, the American dream seems to shatter slightly every time Klein clicks. The war may have been over but a new one was being waged."
Also featured this week: five signed books in three lots by Swedish phenom JH Engström, beginning with his very first monograph Härbärge (Shelter)—incredibly rare! Plus, in one lot, Haunts + Sketch of Home and, in another,CDG/JHE (Charles De Gaule Airport) + La Residence.
AND MORE: Thomas Struth's Museum Photographs (1993 true first edition; signed); Rob Pruitt's wryly blasphemous Holy Crap; the protest classic Algerien by Dirk Alvermann (first edition) and MORE. Check out Eric Mile's video presentation. Thanks as always for looking!
