Amerikanske Billeder. En personlig rejse gennem det sorte Amerika (American Pictures) - First edition. INCLUDING original portrait of Holdt.
- Copenhagen: Informations Forlag, 1977. 4to. Original softcover as issued. 272 pp. Illustrated throughout. Near fine copy with average wear to cover, mainly spine. Inside clean. In the early 1970s, when Jacob Holdt first arrived in the US with 40 dollars in his pocket, he planned to travel quickly across the country to South America. But, totally shocked and fascinated by what he discovered, he ended up staying five years. His family could scarcely believe the letters he sent them detailing the poverty he saw, so his father sent him a cheap amateur camera in order that Holdt could send home proof of his claims. Living as a vagabond, selling his blood twice a week, hitch-hiking over 100,000 miles, he depicted an incredible and unique portrait of America and its underclass. Several editions of this book was published but this is the rare true first edition and first printing of 'American Pictures'. Parr & Badger II, 247. INCLUDING original photographic portrait of Holdt from 1977. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
