Le due fotografie, scattate di fronte sono: - Una fotografia originale di Jean Genet condotto a Rabat nel 1985, probabilmente uno degli ultimi ritratti dello scrittore morto 14 aprile 1986 - Un ritratto fotografico originale di Luigi Diaz, internato. psichiatria, presa a Liegi nel 1984 Ritratto dello scrittore, artista, anonimo, pazzi, nel macello o un albero. Marc Trivier fotografato ogni soggetto con la stessa intensità interrogativa. Il tutto realizzato nella stessa piazza, elementare e chiuso senza modifica o ritagliare le fotografie formato sembrano meno messa in scena di un soggetto - famosi o sconosciuti, eletti o deposto, vivi o morti - interrogare una presenza. "Quello che mi interessava non era solo fotografare un corpo o del viso, ma questa particolare situazione è qualcuno che fa la foto di qualcun altro." Confrontando ritratti artisti nella loro corrispondenti modificato Trivier sveste il lavoro dei suoi effetti e rivela il corpo nudo fotografico enigmatico. "Nella sua cosmogonia, ogni cosa, ogni essere, vegetale, animale o umana, merita lo stesso rispetto per esse si affacciano tutte la stessa legge di ferro. Solitude." (Luca Desbenoit in Télérama, 05/03/2011 in occasione della retrospettiva Marc Trivier alla Maison Européenne de la Photographie).

Les deux photographies, mises en regard, sont: - Une photographie originale de Jean Genet réalisée à Rabat en 1985, probablement un des derniers portraits de l'écrivain qui meurt le 14 avril 1986. - Un portrait photographique original de Louis Diaz, interné en psychiatrie, pris à Liège en 1984. Portrait d'écrivain, d'artiste, d'anonyme, de fou, d'abattoir ou d'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'interroger une présence. «Ce qui m'intéressait, ce n'était pas de photographier simplement un corps ou un visage, mais cette situation particulière qui est quelqu'un en train de faire la photo de quelqu'un d'autre.» En confrontant les portraits d'artistes à leur correspondant altéré, Trivier dévêt l'oeuvre de ses effets et dévoile l'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'airain : la solitude. " (Luc Desbenoit in Télérama, le 05/03/2011 à l'occasion de la rétrospective Marc Trivier à la Maison Européenne de la Photographie). Tirages argentiques non signés, comme la plupart des oeuvres de Trivier. Epreuves uniques tirées par l'artiste. Infime déchirure en pied de la photo de l'abattoir et petites traces de pliures sans gravité sur les marges. Rarissime diptyque d'un des grands photographes contemporains.

        ANNE FRANK: DIARY OF A YOUNG GIRL

      1985. West Hatfield, Mass.; Pennyroyal Press with Jewish Heritage Publishing, 1985. Full Morocco. Folio. [196] pages. 35 x 23 cm. Two volumes housed in linen slipcase. Het Achterhuis, the Diary of Anne Frank, with illustrations, deluxe letterpress printed edition. One of 350 numbered copies, signed by Joseph Goldyne and Barry Moser. Gray morocco by Ellenport of Boston, stamped in blind, with quarter gray morocco and linen matching chemise for the tissued plates, slipcased. 14 x 9 inches (35 x 23 cm); text volume unpaginated (with ten plates), the chemise with ten pencil signed plates. Goldyne's work comprises etching, aquatint and roulette. Anne Frank?s Diary, appearing first in Dutch as ?HET ACHTERHUIS: DAGBOEKBRIEVEN 12 JUNI 1942-1 AUGUSTUS 1944? and later in English as ?The Diary of a Young Girl,? is a work which continues to hold its place at the top of many literary lists: the most famous diary of modern times, the most famous work by a teenager, most famous work on the Holocaust, most famous 20th Century work by a Jew, etc?. Primo Levi suggested that Anne Frank is frequently identified as a single representative of the millions of people who suffered and died as she did because "One single Anne Frank moves us more than the countless others who suffered just as she did but whose faces have remained in the shadows. Perhaps it is better that way; if we were capable of taking in all the suffering of all those people, we would not be able to live." Otto Frank, Anne?s father spent the remainder of his life after publication of the Diary as custodian of his daughter's legacy, saying, "It's a strange role. In the normal family relationship, it is the child of the famous parent who has the honor and the burden of continuing the task. In my case the role is reversed." He recalled his publisher's explaining why he thought the diary has been so widely read, with the comment, "he said that the diary encompasses so many areas of life that each reader can find something that moves him personally." Simon Wiesenthal expressed a similar sentiment when he said that the diary had raised more widespread awareness of the Holocaust than had been achieved during the Nuremberg Trials, because "people identified with this child. This was the impact of the Holocaust, this was a family like my family, like your family and so you could understand this" (Wikipedia, 2012). This edition comprised a commemoration of the fortieth anniversary of the death of Anne Frank. This title has sold at auction in 2007, 2009, & 2011 for over USD 1550. Subjects: World War, 1939-1945 - Jews. Frank, Anne, 1929-1945. Netherlands - History - German occupation, 1940-1945. Near Fine Condition. Beautiful and Powerful. (HOLO2-105-48)

The first time this book was published in a hardcover format was in the UK in 1985, published by Jonathan Cape. This is that copy, the first hardcover edition, 1st printing and coincidently, the first UK edition as well. This elusive edition remains the plum of the 1980s literary bratpack revolution. This edition is signed by Jay McInerney directly to the title page. Signed in person in NYC during the celebratory release of Jay McInerney's Bright, Precious Days. Book is crisp, square and tight with sharp corners. Endpapers are bright and clean. Pages lay tight and unread. Most faint traces (barely) of light foxing to page edges. Original 1st issue DJ with 8.50 price intact on flap. Yellow titles on DJ spine are bright. Jonathan Cape manufactured these DJs with a thin protective film coating. If you look closely, you can see some of the film lines. Condition report is hyper-critical. This is an incredible copy of a most desirable, landmark title that defines an era.

        Queer

      New York: The Viking Press, 1985 First edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by Burroughs to Steven Lowe on the title page in the year of publication: "for Steve Lowe / with memories of / many years of / friendship / William S. Burroughs / November 6, 1985". Publisher's light blue cloth, lettered in silver; in the original white pictorial dust jacket designed by Neil Stuart, illustrated with George Baselitz's Orangenesser X to the front panel, lettered in black. Near fine, with a hint of toning to the extremities, else fine; unclipped dust jacket, with a 1" closed tear to the bottom edge of the rear panel, light soiling to flap folds, else bright and fresh. Overall, a very clean and beautiful copy. Burroughs inscribed this copy of Queer to his close friend, assistant, and collaborator Steve Lowe. As Mark Van de Walle comments in a 2011 article about Lowe and his Beat Hotel for The Paris Review, "Steve and William were close and more than close? They were friends, although that word seems pallid to describe their relationship, more intimate than most marriages." Similarly, Lowe and Burroughs' professional relationship extended beyond the usual boundaries. As Van de Walle explains, Lowe was "William Burroughs's amanuensis, a position that combined the duties of researcher, artist's assistant, gallerist, and Official Writer's-Block Breaker." Over the course of their friendship, which spanned well over a quarter century, Lowe amassed a sizeable collection of Burroughs ephemera and signed materials, including this copy of Queer. Burroughs first began writing Queer, a companion piece to Junkie (1953), in 1951 shortly after the death of his wife Joan and while he was awaiting trial for her accidental homicide. Like Junkie, this semiautobiographical text features heroin addict William Lee as the protagonist. Set in Mexico City, Queer follows Lee as he suffers from "acute heroin withdrawal" and has a romantic interest in a fellow addict. Although he disliked Queer for its painful reminders of the past, Burroughs notes in the introduction that he would "never have become a writer but for Joan's death.". Inscribed by Author(s). 1st Edition.. Hardcover. Fine/Dust Jacket Included.
