        Portrait de Jacques Derrida. Photographie Originale de l'artiste

      Par l'auteur 1986 - - Par l'auteur, s.l. 1986, 22x22cm sur papier Ilford 30x40cm, une feuille. - Grand portrait photographique original en noir et blanc réalisé par Marc Trivier. Tirage argentique original non signé, comme la plupart des œuvres de Trivier. Précieuse épreuve argentique originale du célèbre photographe belge, un des artistes contemporains les plus secrets, qui malgré un succès international précoce, a préféré limiter sa production pour conserver la cohérence de son œuvre. Marc Trivier ne tire pas de nouveaux exemplaires de ses anciens portraits, le papier de tirage qu'il utilisait n'est d'ailleurs plus commercialisé. L'artiste « réalise lui-même ses tirages sur papier baryté Ilford, consacrant plusieurs jours de travail à chacun, avec une concentration particulière pour rendre les blancs, par contraste avec des noirs d'une rare densité. Un tirage de Marc Trivier ne ressemble à aucun autre. Lorsqu'il accepte de les exposer, il les suspend dans des cadres en inox de sa fabrication, laissant libre cours à la vie du papier. » (Xavier-Gilles, « Marc Trivier et la tragédie de la lumière » in Le Monde Libertaire, 2011). Cette « vie du papier » participe de l'œuvre au même titre que les diverses altérations que subissent les photographies lorsqu'elles sont exposées : « Dans les boites, les tirages gondolent, mais qu'importe : le photographe affectionne ce genre d'accident. » (Claire Guillot, « Les face à face sans échappatoire du photographe Marc Trivier », Le Monde, 2011). Marc Trivier a une sensibilité particulière pour l'aspect matériel de ses productions. Alors que la photographie relève par essence du multiple, cette intervention de l'artiste dans tout le processus de création confère une aura autographique à ces tirages. Photographies d'artistes, de fous, d'arbres ou d'abattoirs, Marc Trivier aborde tous ces sujets avec un regard aussi précis qu'intense. « 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). La beauté qui émane de ses photos vient de cette nudité. Il n'y a ni retouches, ni recadrages. On retrouve dans son œuvre le même format carré souligné par le carré du négatif que Trivier laisse sur ses tirages. Ce cadre piège notre regard dans des photographies où le fard de la couleur est rejeté pour un noir et blanc incisif. Toute artificialité ayant disparu nous ne faisons pas face à la mise en scène d'un sujet mais à une présence exacerbée par la lumière irradiante et singulière, témoin d'un instant de vie et non de pose. C'est cette lumière, liée au médium photographique, qui unit les séries de Marc Trivier : « Les photographies de Marc Trivier écrivent une tragédie de la lumière, celle-ci n'accueillant les êtres - hommes, arbres ou bêtes - qu'en les brûlant, avant disparition. » (Xavier-Gilles in Le Monde Libertaire). C'est aussi elle, délivrée de tous les artifices, qui donne à ses œuvres l'aura qui les rend si présentes. Cette « brûlure » de la lumière nous renvoie à un instant réel, au « ça a été » de Barthes (La Chambre Claire, 1980) : « De trente-cinq ans de pratique photographique, d'obsessions, c'est peut-être ça qui reste : un mode d'enregistrement singulier de la brûlure de la lumière, décliné d'une image à l'autre, en une succession de propositions qui se ressemblent et pourtant chacune est aussi singulière que la fraction de temps auquel elle renvoie. » (Marc Trivier). « La photographie ne dit qu'une chose : « C'était. » On ne fixe que ce qui a été. S'il y a une tragédie, elle est là. » (Marc Trivier) Warhol, Foucault, Beckett, Dubuffet . les plus grands écrivains et artistes ont posés pour Trivier. Simultanément l'artiste s'intéressent également aux marges de la société, à ce que les hommes ne veulent pas voir. Il photographie alors les aliénés et les abattoirs qu'il place en regard des célébrités. Dès la fin des années 1980 son œuvre est unanimement reconnue et il reçoit le prestigieux [Attributes: First Edition]

        MCI - The Meinertzhagen Card Index on Netsuke in the Archives of the British Museum, Part A and B (2 volumes)

      Alan R. Liss, Inc., New York, 1986 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. English text; Hardcover (with dust jacket); 22.5 x 29 cm; 4,333 Kg; 2 volumes with 1059 pages and over 5000 entries.; SCARCE REFERENCE BOOK ON NETSUKE..; Used books with minor signs of wear. The dust jackets are protected with a clearcover.; Since netsuke made their first appearance in Europe over 100 years ago, they have slowly but steadily been established among an enthusiastic circle of collectors as serious objects of art. These small sculptures range in size from 3 to 15 cm and display astonishing detail. Since the seventeenth century, they have served as a medium for artistic expression that comes as near to perfection as anything human hands could create. This publication represents the lifetime collection and study of netsuke by Frederick Meinertzhagen, one of the world's foremost authorities on netsuke. Meinertzhagen realized the need for a single source that would provide the necessary information for collectors to appreciate fully their unique qualities, but was unable to find a publisher willing to take on such an enormous task. Eventually, he indexed his entire collection; it is currently on display at the British Museum library, so that others might benefit from it. With the permission of the Museum, netsuke enthusiasm George Lazarnick photographed the entire Index for publication, thereby creating a source that successfully presents this wealthy of information to all serious collectors and dealers of netsuke. The Index consists of two volumes with over 5,000 entries that provide detailed information on individual netsuke. Perhaps the most exciting and helpful aspects of the Index are the marvelously accurate drawings of netsuke done by Meinertzhagen. The cards provide a hand drawn facsmile of the artist's signature, accurately recording the carver's original calligraphy and his kakihan. Historical backgrounds, critical commentaries, notes on various artists, and methods of collecting are included by Meinertzhagen on the cards, along with illustrations of some 100 unsigned netsuke. The book also includes photographs, correspondence, and personal insigns by those who knew Meinertzhagen, providing a complete detail of his life and work. This publication will serve as an authoritative and comprehensive reference guide for all serious collectors of netsuke and related arts. Distinguished collector Raymond Bushell notes, "George Lazarnick, with his great knowledge of netsuke and his professionalism in photography, makes the best of the Meinertzhagen Card Index available to collectors in the form in which (Meinertzhagen) wanted it. The book is a practical undertaking and a great service to collectors.".

        O RIO DE JANEIRO: A PHOTOGRAPHIC JOURNAL

      New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 1986. First Edition. First Printing.. Softcover. Fine/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. New York City, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 1986. Softcover. Fine/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. Unpaginated. Retrospective collection of photographs, presented as an Artist Book. One of the most beautiful photography books of the 20th century. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a tall softcover original only. The First Edition is now rare. A brilliant production by Bruce Weber and Sam Shahid: Oversize-volume format. The book weighs 4 pounds. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs and text by Bruce Weber. Drawings by Richard Giglio. Printed in multi-toned palette on pristine-white, thick uncoated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. The reproduction quality is exemplary in every respect. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Bruce Weber's "O Rio de Janeiro: A Photographic Journal". A scrapbook-cum-travel-diary of Weber's visit to Rio. It was love at first sight for Weber. Rio's sensuality and exuberance, physicality and musicality, the laid-back lifestyle, the culture, the music, the food, the street, the beach, the natural landscape, and most of all, the Brazilian men and women - who are the most beautiful people in the world, according to the late great Italian fashion designer Gianni Versace - all conspired to inspire and liberate the American photographer. Arranged in "free-form" sequences, like an impassioned and extended piece of samba/bossa nova-cum-jazz music, "O Rio de Janeiro" seduces and dazzles. In his previous books, Weber succeeded in perfecting an idealized image of the All-American male, partly by assimilating styles as diverse as Andre de Dienes, Roger Corbeau, George Platt Lynes, Herbert List, and Wilhelm Von Gloeden. With his new-found subject, he seems to have found his true voice. Its only precursor (and likely influence) is Kishin Shinoyama's "Olele Olala Jelmi in Rio" (1971), a great photography book, now rare in collectible condition. An absolute "must-have" title for Bruce Weber collectors. <b><i> This title is a photography book classic. This is one of few copies of the First Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. It is, quite simply, the single most beautiful copy we have ever seen. Please note: Most copies available online have serious flaws ("Near Fine", "Very Good") or are remainder-marked yet command as much as $2000. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare copy thus. </i></b> Lavishly illustrated with black-and-white and toned photographs. "O Rio de Janeiro", perhaps the sexiest photography book ever published, was selected as one of the "Seminal Photography Books of The 20th Century" in the "Book of 101 Books". One of the finest American photographers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER BRUCE WEBER TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 039455938X.
