"In 1902 the Egyptian Antiquities Service (now called the Supreme Council of Antiquities) granted permits for scientific excavations at the royal pyramids and private mastaba tombs of Giza. The American team under George A. Reisner (1867-1942), eventually became the Joint Egyptian Expedition of Harvard University and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in 1905, and continued almost uninterrupted until Reisner's death in 1942. The Expedition formally closed in 1947. Despite the publication of his monumental History of the Giza Necropolis I-II, Reisner was unable to see through the press an additional 5,000 pages of unpublished manuscript (Giza Necropolis II, III, IV), or begin the tomb-by-tomb publication series he originally envisioned. This task was initiated by William Kelly Simpson in the early 1970s in the form of the Giza Mastabas Series. The goal of the project is to continue and complete the publication of Reisner's excavations at Giza, fully documenting the mastaba tombs with descriptive text, hieroglyphic translations, facsimile line drawings, plans, sections, and photographs." (Museum of Fine Arts Boston). Monumental undertaking producing an exceptional publication with fascinating b/w photographs, plans and line drawings throughout, many of the figurative plates fold out. Previous owner's name inked to inside front cover of first, exlibris' in second and third volume. Light musty odor to first volume. DJs, bindings and interior in overall very good+ condition.

        Portrait de Graham Greene. Photographie Originale de l'artiste

      Large original photographic portrait in black and white directed and shot by Marc Trivier.Unsigned silver print, like most of Trivier's works. Unique proof drawn by the artist.Photographs of artists, madmen, trees or slaughterhouses, Marc Trivier approaches all these subjects with a look as precise as intense."In its cosmogony, every thing, every being, vegetable, animal or human, deserves the same respect. For all are confronted with the same law of brass: loneliness. (Luc Desbenoit)The beauty that emanates from his photos comes from this nudity. There is no editing or cropping. We find in his work the same square format that traps our eyes in photographs where the makeup of color is rejected for an incisive black and white. Since all artificiality has disappeared, we are not dealing with the staging of a subject but with a presence exacerbated by the radiant and singular light, witness of a moment of life and not of pose. It is this light, linked to and obsessed with Trivier's medium, that gives his works the aura that makes them so present:"Of thirty-five years of photographic practice, of obsessions, it is perhaps that which remains: a singular mode of recording of the burning of light, declined from one image to another, in a succession propositions that are similar and yet each is as singular as the fraction of time to which it refers. (Marc Trivier)Taken from the front, with a look at the subject directed towards the lens, the photographs that Marc Trivier realizes personalities of the 1980s are not those of a star portraitist, but result on the contrary from a desire to desacralize:"Instead of being a portraitist of writers and artists among many others, he is marginalized by his device: under the pretext of adjustments, he makes his models wait, he makes them ask several minutes which gives them a weary air. He may be waiting for a more natural behavior. And we find ourselves facing Francis Bacon in precarious balance, Samuel Beckett, Jean Dubuffet or Michel Foucault more or less packed in their chair. Intimate images. ". (A picture of tifoxing Marc Trivier, S. Rousselle-Tellier, in Marges, 2004)Photographed in their personal universe, most of the time their room, the subjects surrender themselves, no longer master their image. The imbalance that results reveals the fragility of these strong personalities, and allows Trivier to restore the unity of the intimate body and the public work."I read Genet; for me Genet, it was letters on a book. And then one day I saw his portrait, it was like a fracture. How was it possible that these signs are also someone? To make a portrait is to tie up the name and the face. (Marc Trivier)Warhol, Foucault, Beckett, Dubuffet ... the greatest writers and artists have posed for Trivier. At the same time, the artist is also interested in the margins of society, which men do not want to see. He then photographs the lunatics and slaughterhouses he places next to celebrities. By the end of the 1980s his work was unanimously recognized and he received the prestigious Young Photographer Award from the International Center of Photography in 1988 as well as the Prix Photographie Ouverte (Charleroi). After the Palais de Tokyo in Paris and the Musée de l'Elysée in Lausanne, the Casino in Luxembourg, the European House of Photography in Paris devotes a major retrospective to him in 2011.

        [Photo Album]: Woman traveling in China 1980

      China, 1980. Very Good. Quarto measuring 9" x 11" A photo album with a thin basket weave design over the stiff paper boards. Contains 125 color photographs measuring 3.5" x 4.5" with very few captions. Slight waviness on the boards and edgewear thus very good with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by a woman while traveling in China for roughly nine months in 1980, between January and September. While there are almost no captions the verso of most of the photos have a month and day written on them. The photos are of usual tourist sights around Beijing including the Great Wall of China, Tiananmen Square, and the Temple of Heaven. These photos show the woman, who is a middle-aged blonde woman, posing by the landmarks with other members of a tour group as well as Chinese people. Also included in the album are two newspaper clippings about New York Mayor Koch's trip to China in 1980, whether there is any connection to that trip is unclear. She also photographed the local Chinese people. One of these photos shows a woman with a megaphone in Tiananmen Square who later poses with the compiler of the album. Other photos show children playing, people in a market, Chinese officials in uniform, and numerous people on bicycles (the bicycles in Beijing so impressed Mayor Koch that he implemented bike lanes in New York upon returning from his trip). The group also visited the waterways of the area and photographed numerous ships which included those with beautiful decorative sails. Additionally there are also photos of the group trying local cuisine as well as photos of the chef at a restaurant they frequented. Many of the billboards and advertisements photographed are in Chinese with one translated which reads, "the just struggles of the people of all countries support each other." By the end of her travels she was even sporting an Asian style blouse and had seemed to take to the culture she had immersed herself in for almost a year.An interesting collection of travel photography from a woman's nine month trip to China.
