1949 - STETTNER, Louis. 10 Photographs". Introduction by Brassaï. Paris and New York: Two Cities Publications, (1949). Slim folio, six loose sheets and ten duotone plates in original heavy tan wrappers. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $4500.Limited first edition, number 30 of only 265 copies, of this revealing selection of ten Paris and New York street images by Brooklyn-born Louis Stettner"""consummate street photographer in the Cartier-Bresson tradition."Praised by Brassaï as a photographer who reveals the world "with utmost accuracy and the simplicity of great art" (Early Joys), Brooklyn-born Louis Stettner is "a consummate street photographer in the Cartier-Bresson, Atget and, well, Weegee tradition" (New York Times). This impressive group of ten Stettner duotones provides memorable views of empty Paris street corners juxtaposed with high-contrast portraits of individuals on the street. As a realist, Stettner "renounces his personality, his "˜I' with its little fads and immense pretensions. Henceforth he will live under the authority of reality and will dedicate his existence to the cult of its images." Text by Brassaï in French and English translation. Plates fine, original wrappers and loose sheets with expert repairs to folds. A near-fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
