Philip Lorca-Dicorcia: Streetwork, 1993-1997 (still in publishers shrink wrap) [£430.00]
Photographs by Philip-Lorca DiCorcia of sidewalk scenes from 10 cities worldwide, from Los Angeles to Odessa (Ukraine), from Barcelona to Tokyo. – – – – – – – – – “DiCorcia photographed the street life in eight big American, European and Asian cities between 1996 and 1998. On the pavement he placed hidden lights, which lit up passers-by in a special way. His photos elevate the accidental poses, the unintended movements and insignificant facial expressions of the passers-by into a certain meaning. The scenes are like stills from a film on daily life, the city acting as decor. DiCorcia is a photographer who shows life’s dilemmas in a metropolis: isolated individuals disappearing into the masses. His photos lift a few out of the crowd. However, by using the city’s name as the title of the photo he places the passers-by back into the city’s anonymity.”–Noorderlicht Photofestival, 1999. – – – – – – – – – New condition in publisher shrink wrap ( page corners have just penetrated through the wrap slightly ) Scarce original edition in this new condition.
