Chili, September 1973 (Chile, September 1973). De Bezige Bij, Amsterdam, 1973. 48 pp. Quarto. First edition. Printed wraps. Saddle-stitched. Black-and-white reproductions.

"Koen Wessing's Chili, September 1973 is a shocking document from a socially concerned and politically engaged Dutch photojournalist. Published in 1973, just months after the fall of Salvador Allende to Augusto Pinochet’s coup d’etat, it describes the tense days of the military attempt to root out public opposition in the streets of Santiago."--Publisher's description from errata editions, who re-presented Wessing's book as part of their Books on Books series

"The Dutch photographer Koen Wessing was on the streets of Santiago immediately after the coup happened. His gritty documentary pictures were quickly published in this no frills, extremely elegant photobook … There are not many images in the book, but each is carefully considered, modest and succinct ... despite the difficulties of taking photographs in such a tense and difficult situation. The main thrust of the book is the coup's immediate aftermath, the shock and grief of the people, the rounding up of Allende's supporters by the Army, and their herding into the now notorious National Stadium in Santiago, where many would be tortured and killed. Wessing vividly captures one of these executions, in a two-page sequence that forms the book’s climax."--Parr & Badger



Very Nice Copy!! Fine-; typical tanning to wraps; with unequal fading to back panel; faint creasing to spine (also typical).
