Inhaltsangabe: The long-awaited first retrospective of the Brazilian photographer Miguel Rio Branco.
The deep, succulent color of Miguel Rio Branco's images reflects the richness and complexities of contemporary Latin America; Rio Branco has received wide acclaim for his projects on boxers, Brazilian children, and Cuba. Through his mastery of layering with both color and light, Rio Branco reveals hidden and forbidden segments of his surroundings, illuminating the unspoken and the instinctual. By focusing on the textures of fur and feathers, the flesh of slaughtered animals, or languid human bodies, he captures the cultural layers around him and provides a provocative vision of Latin America.
Drawn from thirty years of work, these photographs display the talent for visual construction that Rio Branco utilized in his direction of more than twenty films. His remarkable conception of installation is a skill attributed to his formal training as a painter. The author, poet, and art commentator David Levi Strauss notes that "Rio Branco's colors seep out of their borders like bodily fluids, staining and contaminating everything around them. Bodies, bindings, wounds, and walls are wet with color. Even his mirrors bleed. Rio Branco's is an art of contamination, contagion, and corrosion, but also of resistance and transcendence."

Presents Miguel Rio Branco's "Photographs". Masterly, indelible images. "His colors seep out of their borders like bodily fluids, staining and contaminating everything around them. Bodies, bindings, wounds, and walls are wet with color. Even his mirrors bleed. Rio Branco's is an art of contamination, contagion, and corrosion, but also of resistance and transcendence" (David Levi Strauss). Miguel Rio Branco's work has been hailed for the way it vividly depicts the quiet anguish, carnal sensuality, and explosive violence of Latin America. It is the Latin spirit (rather than the continent itself) that interests him, and he has photographed in Europe to capture this "Latinity". A member of Magnum, it is hard to think of him as a documentary photographer. Indeed, his work is about the fundamentally subjective, non-documentary character of reality. The robust and simmering physicality of his images is the work of an artist/photographer who shows the underbelly of Roman Catholicism in all of its "Latinity, an extreme lyricism, contrasting affectivity and violence" (Adolfo Montejo). "My work has a lot to do with skin, for that is the surface connecting us to the world, in pleasure as much as in pain. Skin is a dialogue between outside and inside, a separation that is also a connection" (Miguel Rio Branco). The only American photographer whose work is of comparable power, beauty, and anguish is Alex Webb, who was clearly influenced by Rio Branco. An absolute "must-have" title for Miguel Rio Branco collectors. This title is a late-modern photography classic. This is one of very few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online have all kinds of flaws: Rubbing, bumping, crushing, soiling, you name it, but are priced as though they had collectible value. This is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A scarce copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with color plates. Miguel Rio Branco's "Silent Book" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest artist/photographers of our time. A fine copy.
