Riassunto: In Celestial Nights, photographer Neil Folberg skillfully captures a spectacular worldof nocturnal landscapes where the horizon isnGÇÖt always definitive. The earth and heavensare mingled in this collection of arresting photographs, which to Folberg representa blurred division between present and eternity, substance and spirit, and knowledgeand imagination. As Folberg writes, GÇ£No one can draw that line with precision, forwe exist in all of these worlds at once.GÇ¥Celestial Nights marks Folberg's return to black-and-white photography, atechnique he honed as a student and colleague of the late Ansel Adams. The volumepresents a set of photographs that capture not only the skies but also their earthly foreground,creating a striking juxtaposition of the vast arid wilderness with the infiniteand starry heavens. These stunning nighttime scenes feature the same historically andreligiously resonant region of the Middle East that Folberg captured in daytime colorin his first book, AbbevilleGÇÖs In a Desert Land.The landscapes in Celestial Nights carry an aura that is both earthly and divine.FolbergGÇÖs photographs describe places where the spiritual is at once near, imprinted inthe arid landscapes, and far away, in the dark, starlit recesses of space. This extraordinaryphotographic collection is sure to fascinate anyone with an interest in photography,astronomy, or the Middle East.

Descrizione libro New York City, NY: Aperture Foundation, 2001. Hardcover. Condizione libro: Fine. Condizione sovraccoperta: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 62 pages. Published in 2001. Collection of black-and-white photographs. One of the most beautiful photography books of its kind ever published. The true First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the Abbeville 2008 Reissued Edition. Published by the Aperture Foundation in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. An austerely elegant production by Neil Folberg: Oversize-volume format. Black cloth boards with metallic-silver titles embossed on spine, as issued. Photographs by Neil Folberg. Essay by Timothy Ferris. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Hong Kong to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents, in its First-Edition format, Neil Folberg's ravishingly beautiful "Celestial Nights". "Photographs the night sky above his homeland, often as a backdrop but sometimes as the main event. The resulting images, as science writer Timothy Ferris observes, come closer than most other depictions to rendering the reality of being outside in the dark. It must be said that this is an effect of Folberg's artistry rather than one of verisimilitude or human vision. He develops and prints a stand of trees, a ruined temple, or a rock formation as it probably wouldn't be visible to the naked eye. He double-exposes to increase the intensity of the stars. The visual textures he produces often make these black-and-white images seem subliminally colored. These are very careful, painstaking works. None fail to evoke the quiet, cool, and spaciousness of night, and in the starscapes, the preternaturally still depths of astronomic space" (Ray Olson). "Spectacular is not too effusive a word" (The New York Times). An absolute "must-have" title for Neil Folberg collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the half-title page by Neil Folberg. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a contemporary art photography classic. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing (Aperture Foundation) still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Almost all other copies available online are the Abbeville 2008 Reissued Edition, which does not have any collectible value. A rare signed copy thus. Lavishly illustrated with tritone plates. Some of the finest photographers of our time. A fine copy. ISBN 0789209543. Signed by Author. Codice libro della libreria 19153
