Edward Albee and Dimitris Yeros
This is a luxurious, cloth-bound 44-page book, in a 11”x8.25” (28x21 cm) format. US$ 25,00
Thirteen years ago the great American playwright Edward Albee, who passed away last September, wrote a poem entitled Another Narcissus, inspired by a photo taken by the Greek photographer Dimitris Yeros. Then, five years ago, while rereading the poem, Yeros was in his turn inspired by it to do a few more photographs which he has now printed in a book by the same title.
The introduction to the book was written by prominent poet and art critic John Wood.
It is a book of photographs and personal memories by Dimitris Yeros in 50 numbered and signed Copies.
A Luxurious cloth-bound handcrafted box 19.2x15x2.5 in. (49x38x6 cm) houses a signed copy of the book Dimitris Yeros Photographing Gabriel García Márquez, which was recently published by Kerber PhotoArt and two numbered and signed photographs, ready to be framed.
The book is of high-quality, large-format, cloth-bound, with 136 pages, size 9x12 in. (24x30 cm.), containing photographs taken by Greek painter and photographer Dimitris Yeros in sessions with the writer in Mexico and Colombia, which present García Márquez in some of the most beautiful moments of his last years, and create a powerful memento, a fond memory for all those who knew him and loved him through his books.
The Images are one silver print and one archival inkjet print on Hahnemühle cotton rug paper. Both are 12x16 in. (40x30 cm), numbered and signed by the artist on the verso. They can be signed on the front, inside the white margin by request.
Pricing begins at US$1350 that will increase as quantities become limited.
The book’s foreword was written by prominent art critic Edward Lucie-Smith. The extensive afterword was written by the photographer himself, who describes in it his relationship with the writer and details of their meetings.
“This book is fascinating because it shows us aspects of one of the greatest writers of our age. Each likeness is subtly different. Each is an avatar of a complex personality – complex enough to hide in plain sight. One might even go so far as to say that each is a loving betrayal. I am quite sure that those who turn these pages will find themselves looking at them, not once, but repeatedly. The point about Magic Realism in literature is that it seeks to present not just outer reality, but the operation of some kind of inner realm, linked to reality but somehow transcending it. That is what these portraits do here, thanks to the magic of the lens.”
