Collier Schorr

SteidlMack, Göttingen/London, 2005. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Signed. 4to. [168] pp. From the publisher: "Jens F. is a limited-edition artists book using photography and appropriation to subtly explore ideas of desire, gender, identification and performance. In Collier Schorr's own words: The Jens pictures began as an experiment. To photograph a young boy in many of the positions that Andrew Wyeth painted the model Helga… The work evolved into a kind of dance between the two models, between painting and photography… As a way of keeping track of all these images, I began to clip out the contact prints I liked and to paste them into Wyeth's book The Helga Pictures." A near fine copy of the artist's most sought after book.
