Presents John O'Reilly's "Assemblies of Magic". The single most comprehensive overview of the photographic art of John O'Reilly. A long-overdue documentation of his magical, one-of-a-kind art. "Meditations on space, art, war, death, and religion merge with the homoerotic in John O'Reilly's intensely personal photo-transformations. For this artist, montage has proved the richest medium for personal allegory, and the formal and symbolic evolution of O'Reilly's work corresponds to his own awakening and self-discovery" (Francine Koslow Miller). Unlike the Woody Allen character, Zelig, who sought to blend in and become like the people around him, O'Reilly's presence in the company of the Masters is rude, obtrusive, and conspicuous. The artist/photographer's purpose is to identify himself, who he is, what he cares about, and where he believes he belongs (by association) in the history of Western art. As such, they are witty, self-deprecating (O'Reilly rarely presents himself in the best light and is never presumptuous), and touching self-portraits. O'Reilly's montage technique is the exact opposite of Photoshop: He makes the seams as visible as possible; there is no attempt on his part to airbrush in order to "improve" or "perfect" an image. An absolute "must-have" title for John O'Reilly collectors. This title is a contemporary art photography classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online are remainder-marked or have serious flaws. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce copy thus. 106 plates. One of the most brilliant artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JOHN O'REILLY TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1931885133. no. Nº de ref. de la librería 16716
