Wicki, Bernhard (photog.); Georg Ramseger (Hrsg.);
Zwei Gramm Licht (Two Grams of Light)
Interbooks Zürich, Zürich, 1960. 4to. 104pp. Black paper-covered boards with printed paste-down in original pictorial dust jacket. Photographic endpapers. Captivating dramatic work by Austrian (Swiss) actor, director and photographer, Bernhard Wicki (1919-2000). Wicki became famous with his 1959 anti-war film "Die Brücke". In this publication he proofed that he also was a fine photographer. "Zwei Gramm Licht is a fine photobook, an urban mood piece that chronicles the photographer's wanderings across the postwar European landscape. Opening with three shots of caravan shanty towns, the journey is a gloomily romantic one. This mood is emphasized by the ravishingly dark gravure printing, craggy urban portraits, a wrecked car, grizzled tramps." (Parr / Badger, v 1, p. 215). Profusely illustrated with full-, and double-page reproductions in photogravure. Foreword by Friedrich Dürrenmatt; afterword by Georg Ramseger. Text in German. Name of previous owner , dated Nov. 66, handwritten on blank leaf preceding title-page. Very minor chipping on head of spine on dj, slight soiling on dj flaps, otherwise tight copy in near fine to fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
