Schles, Ken
The Geometry of Innocence [WITH AN ORIGINAL SIGNED & NUMBERED SILVER-GELATIN PRINT]
Hatje Cantz, Ostfildern-Ruit (Germany), 2001. 1/50. Folio. Unpaginated. Original black cloth binding and clamshell folder. Book and folder housed in a matching slipcase. In "The Geometry of Innocence" Schles focuses on the relentless shifting of social structures and spaces that mark the urban landscape of today. His images form a kind of visu al roller coaster, sending the viewer onto city streets and playgrounds, into pubs and bars, putting the viewer inside a police helicopter and taking them to death row, hospital rooms, and police interventions. While there is no story per se, this breathless sequence of pictures (106 color and 87 duotone illustrations) is condensed into thematic clusters, providing a spellbinding and almost physically palpable experience. The works in "The Geometry of Innocence" address and play upon the immediacy and relativity of meaning in the photographic image, creating a bold and highly nuanced artistic statement. This limited edition version comes with a signed and numbered gelatin silver print, and is limited to 50 copies (this copy being No.24). The original print is laid into a clamshell folder, is titled "The End of the World" and is signed and numbered by Ken Schles. Custom slipcase and mylar. Slipcases, binding, folder and interior in like new condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
