        Toit à Aurillac. 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)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.

        Barock: Theatrum Mundi. Die Welt als Kunstwerk [Gebundene Ausgabe] Rolf Toman Achim Bednorz Barbara Borngässer Reihe/Serie: Bibliothek der Kunstepochen Kunst Kunstgeschichte Kunststile Barock Barocke

      Nach dem Welterfolg ARS SACRA begibt sich das Team um Rolf Toman erneut auf die Reise. Das Schloss von Versailles und die Peterskirche im Vatikan waren die herausragenden Bauwerke des Barock. Aber ungeahnte Kostbarkeiten finden sich in Europa und in Amerika, der Neuen Welt: Prachtvolle Bibliotheken, Tresorräume der Wissenschaft oder geheimnisvolle Gartenanlagen, kunstfertige Porzellanarbeiten und illusionistische Malerei, um nur einige Aspekte dieser vielschichtigen Epoche zu nennen. Mit Leidenschaft und Akribie gelang es dem Fotografen Achim Bednorz Details von Bildwerken vor die Linse zu bekommen, wie sie selbst vor Ort am Original nicht wahrgenommen werden. Die exklusiv für den vorliegenden Band so entstandenen Fotografien kommen durch das große Format besonders gut zur Geltung. Die Autorin Barbara Borngässer entwirft dazu ihre Geschichte des Barock und entführt den Leser in das damalige Welttheater, das Theatrum Mundi. Ein prachtvolles Buch mit hervorragenden Abbildungen. Die Kunst des Barock. Ein Traum. (Frankfurter Rundschau) Das Welttheater in einem Prachtband. Was der Foliant vor Augen rückt, das sind die Räume, Fassaden, Skulpturen und Gemälde. Und zwar mit exzellenten Fotografien in [] stattlichen Formaten. (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) Die atemberaubenden Bilder in den opulenten, sieben Kilogramm schweren Büchern [] sprechen für sich. Die neue Generation von Kunstbüchern. (Express) Über den Autor: Rolf Toman wollte ursprünglich Lehrer werden. Doch nach Abschluss des Zweiten Staatsexamens folgten statt der Schultätigkeit weitere Lehr- und Arbeitsjahre in einem großen internationalen Verlagshaus als Verlagslektor. Ab 1992 arbeitete er als freier Herausgeber für verschiedene international wirkende Verlagshäuser. Kunstgeschichtliche Epochenbände bildeten das Zentrum seiner langjährigen Arbeit. Rolf Toman lebt und arbeitet in Südfrankreich. Der Kölner Fotograf Achim Bednorz arbeitet seit über 20 Jahren für internationale Publikationen zu kunsthistorischen Themen. Er hat sich vor allem als Spezialist für Sakralräume einen Namen gemacht. Sein Interpretations-Prinzip ist denkbar einfach: maximale Wirklichkeitsnähe, d.h. Darstellung des Objekts in ausgewogener Lichtführung, Erkennbarkeit wie bei Idealbedingungen, Verzicht auf jede Effekthascherei. Achim Bednorz ist Architekturfotograf und arbeitet seit vielen Jahren für Buchprojekte zu kunsthistorischen Themen. Als Spezialist für Sakralräume hat er sich einen Namen gemacht. Dr. Barbara Borngässer studierte Kunstgeschichte, Romanistik und Archäologie in Berlin, Florenz und Salamanca. Sie schrieb zahlreiche Publikationen zur Kunst und Architektur der Neuzeit.

        THE STARLIGHT CREEK ANGLING SOCIETY [SIGNED COPY]

      Meadowland Press, Stone Harbor 1992 - First edition. Limited to 500 copies, signed by the author on the limitation page. Frontis, line drawings. Black cloth with spine titles in silver. Housed in publisher's slipcase. Still In publisher's shrinkwrap, as new copy. Extremely scarce and unopened copy of an esoteric and reverberating classic in the practical and philosophical art of flyfishing. Middleton was a North American nature writer who hailed from the South, who was an award-winning outdoors columnist who wrote for various publications such as Southern Living and Louisiana Life. He lived but 44 years, dying of a suspected brain aneurism. ".At the time of his death at age 44 in 1993, Harry Middleton was working three jobs. He was a factory janitor, a grocery store stocker and a garbage man in suburban Birmingham, Alabama. He was also a fly fisherman and one of America's greatest writers, known for creative nonfiction and as a memoirist. Never heard of him, right? It could be that solitary activities combining athleticism, concentration and contemplativeness result in the deepest consciousness. Perhaps none fit this description better than fly fishing; certainly, no fly fisherman exemplifies the potential better than Harry Middleton. Fly fishing was as needful an element to Harry as oxygen is to the rest of us. All the way through an unusual life, fly fishing was much more to Harry than a hobby. It was a connection to all creatures and life beyond its typical experience. Fly fishing made living deeper to Harry than the activity of a rod and reel, deeper, too, than the best of writing. Planted in the rushing waters of a mountain stream, Harry stood observantly amid universal consciousness. That is, after all, where the trout are. The fish are sought, caught and released much as thoughts that are appreciated instead of consumed, permitted freedom to tantalize another fisherman at another time."(From "Fishing and Writing Lesson From Harry Middleton", by Michael Driver -- in the public domain).

        Der Architektonische Raum: Funfzehn Lektionen Uber die Disposition der Menschlichen Behausung [Gebundene Ausgabe] von Dom H. Van Der Laan (Autor)

      Brill Academic Pub, 1992. 1992. Hardcover. 16,5 x 1,9 x 24,8 cm. Der architectonische Raum'ist die umfassendste und klarste Abhandlung über die Natur, die Wirkung und die Bedeutung der Architektur, die bisher versucht wurde.Es ist das Ergebnis des Lebenswerkes seines Autors über die Idee, die ihn seit seiner Kindheit beschäftigte: die suche nach der Grundlage der Urform des Bauens.Architektur nicht nur als Ausdruck, aber als Voraussetzung von menschlicher Kultur sehend, glaubt Hans van der Laan, daß der Ursprung in der Architektur selbst gesucht werden muß, nicht so sehr in technologischen, sozialen oder ideologischen Faktoren.Seine Bauwerke und Schriften ragen heraus wie steinerne Tafeln inmitten vorherrschender Unsicherheit und Opportonismus.Der Stil und die Methode seines Buches - sein rationaler Aufbau auf Argumenten aus einfachen alltäglichen Wahrnehmungen - erinnern stark an die frühen griechischen Denker, so wie Van der Laan's"Architektur"die Erinnerung an die Bauwerke und Städte der antiken Welt zurückruft. A treatise on the nature, purpose and meaning of architecture, relfecting the author's search for the archetypal basis of the act of building. Seeing architecture not merely as the expression, but as the precondition of human culture, Hans van der Laan believes that its principles must be sought within architecture itself, rather than in technological, social or ideological factors.
