Welcome to photo-eye Auctions!



This week we lead off with a Mexican rarity from the 1930s, Enrique Gutmann's Despertar lagunero (Awakening in the Comarca Lagunera), one of the most singular visual documents of Latin American Revolutionary politics of the era, and in many ways equal to the great Soviet propaganda photobooks of the period.

Also on the auction block this week:
Frederick Sommer: Aperture 10:4 1962 (1939–1962 Photographs) — rare hardbound edition
André Kertész: Day of Paris — in scarce dust jacket
Ikko Kagari: Document Commuter Train — Parr/Badger, III
Jessica Dimmock: Ninth Floor — Parr/Badger, III

Thanks so much for looking!
