Descripción Amsterdam, Netherlands: Willem Diepraam Studios, 1990. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 1 pages. Published in 1990. Rare Willem Diepraam collectible piece. Vintage Silver-Gelatin Print of the great Willem Diepraam photograph. Limited Edition of 15 signed, titled, and dated copies. Print size is 11 X 20 inches. It is elegantly and archivally framed in white matte stock paper and solid dark wood. Full frame size is 29 X 23 inches. The back is mounted in Plexiglas in order to show the signature. The photograph is of a young boy being chased by a pack of wild dogs. The craggy, dotted landscape is streaked with long, undulating gray lines, as if by design, giving the image a powerful, abstract character. It looms over the tiny subjects and appears to envelop them, the Universal and the Particular merging as One. The photograph is named after the place where the incident actually took place, was witnessed, and captured permanently on film by Willem Diepraam (he will not reveal if the dogs caught up with the boy and killed him). As one has come to expect of a photographer who is both a moralist and a formalist, the image is an aesthetic triumph as well as a genuine evocation of unmitigated horror. One of his iconic images, it is beautifully reproduced as a doublespread in the monograph, "Willem Diepraam" (2001). Willem Diepraam is a Dutch photojournalist who has published several books in Europe, none of which is available here. Knowledge of his brilliant work is long overdue in the United States. An absolute "must-have" print for Willem Diepraam collectors. This is a copy of the Limited Edition, and it is very boldly and beautifully signed, titled, and dated in black ink-pen on verso (visible through the Plexiglas mounting on the back) by the photographer: "Willem Diepraam LOMO DE CORVINA, PANAMERICA SUR, LIMA, PERU, 1990" . This vintage print is a photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online, is elegantly and archivally framed, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: All copies of the Limited Edition are now in private hands or public collections. This copy was obtained from Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago, the photographer's American gallery, and comes with Certificate of Provenance from us. A rare signed vintage print thus. 1 original print. One of the most brilliant photographers of our time. A flawless collectible print. (SEE ALSO OTHER WILLEM DIEPRAAM TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Signed by Author. Nº de ref. de la librería 3792
