      Paris, France: Contrejour, 1983. First Edition. First Printing.. Softcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. Paris, France: Contrejour, 1983. Softcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 104 pages. Collection of photographs. One of the greatest photography books of the 20th century. The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, including the Aperture Edition, which is based on it. The edition is now rare. A stupendous production by Gilles Peress and Claude Nori: Oversize-volume format. Glossy pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Gilles Peress. His telexes are brilliantly reproduced at the bottom of the images and give an urgency not only to the photographs but to the life of one restless photojournalist living in a foreign land from day to day. Essay by Gholam-Hossein Sa&#39;edi appended at the end. Printed on thick uncoated stock paper in Paris, France to the very highest standards. In publisher&#39;s original inner plastic and outer paper shrinkwrap. Without DJ, as issued. Presents the finest photographic account ever produced by a Western photojournalist of the Iranian post-revolutionary situation. Peress was appalled by the one-sided and heavily propagandistic American coverage of the Iranian hostage crisis. With money from the National Endowment for the Arts, he flew to Iran on virtually a whim and photographed what he saw, experienced, and felt during a five-week period, from December 1979 through January 1980. The resulting images were lavished with praise and with a rare unanimity: "A book of brilliant visual nervousness between covers" (Cornell Capa). "I appreciate so much the visual strength of Gilles Peress&#39; photographs. They depict an Iran so different from the one I knew through reading and my travels" (Henri Cartier-Bresson). Apart from the sheer vitality of the images, the book has become a landmark in photographic book design and has lost none of its daring innovativeness, impeccable beauty, and palpable immediacy. There is a fluidity to Peress&#39; images that could only have come from his intuitive genius. Peress may never have read Canetti&#39;s great book on crowds, "Crowds And Power". But his book is the closest thing photography has ever achieved in capturing groups in action: "To the crowd in its nakedness everything seems a Bastille" (Elias Canetti). "I wanted to be there, to see it with my own eyes, without responsibility or commitment, either political, visual or conceptual, to anyone" (Gilles Peress). A masterpiece, this is a "must-have" title for Gilles Peress collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black marker on the front free endpaper by Gilles Peress. It is also magnificently titled, signed, and dated in metallic-silver marker on the publisher&#39;s outer black paper wrap by the photographer: "Telex: Persan Gilles Peress 2006". The signature glows beautifully against the light. This is an Import title, has been out-of-print for a very long time, and is now very highly collectible. This is one of very few copies of the First Edition still available online, is the only such signed and titled copy we have ever found, is still in the publisher&#39;s original shrinkwrap (both the inner plastic and the outer paper), and has absolutely no flaws, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> 100 plates. Gilles Peress&#39; "Telex: Iran" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest living photojournalists. A flawless collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER GILLES PERESS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 3931141365.

        Jean Dubuffet. Photographie Originale

      S.l.: Par l&#39;auteur, 1983. Broché. 42x42cm sur papier Ilford 60x50cm. Grand portrait photographique original en noir et blanc de Jean Dubuffet réalisé par Marc Trivier à Paris en 1983. Portrait d&#39;artiste, d&#39;anonyme, de fou, d&#39;abattoir ou d&#39;arbre : Marc Trivier a photographié chaque sujet avec la même intensité interrogative. Toutes réalisées dans le même format carré, élémentaire et clos, sans retouche ni recadrage, les photographies semblent moins mettre en scène un sujet - célèbre ou inconnu, élu ou déchu, vivant ou mort - qu&#39;interroger une présence. «Ce qui m&#146;intéressait, ce n&#146;était pas de photographier simplement un corps ou un visage, mais cette situation particulière qui est quelqu&#146;un en train de faire la photo de quelqu&#146;un d&#146;autre.» Trivier dévêt l&#39;oeuvre de ses effets et dévoile l&#39;énigmatique nudité du corps photographique. "Dans sa cosmogonie, chaque chose, chaque être, végétal, animal ou humain, mérite le même respect. Car tous sont confrontés à la même loi d&#39;airain : la solitude. " (Luc Desbenoit in Télérama, le 05/03/2011 à l&#39;occasion de la rétrospective Marc Trivier à la Maison Européenne de la Photographie). Tirage argentique non signé, comme la plupart des oeuvres de Trivier. Epreuve unique tirée par l&#39;artiste. Une déchirure en tête et en pied, traces de pliure marginale, une trace de pliure angulaire, toutes sans atteinte à la photographie. Rarissime photographie en très grand format d&#39;un des photographes contemporains les plus importants. - Par l&#39;auteur, S.l. _1983, 42x42cm sur papier Ilford 60x50cm, 1 planche photographique. - 1 planche photographique
