Descrizione articolo


This haunting collection of photographs reflects the surreal vision of the New York collector W.M. Hunt. The photographs have a common theme the gaze of the subject is averted, the face obscured or the eyes firmly closed and range from Andre Breton's self-portrait with eyes closed to Ruth Snyder in the electric chair in 1928 and from Weegee's multi-imaged portrait of Andy Warhol in sunglasses to Robert Mapplethorpe's photographs of the artist Alice Neel with her eyes closed. The pictures present a catalogue of anti-portraiture, characterized at first glance by what its subject conceal, not by what the camera reveals. The continuous plate section, broadly ordered as a portrait of humanity from birth to death, has a commentary by Hunt running through it, in which he offers his own intense and perceptive responses to the images he has gathered over many years, as well as insights into the psychology of collecting.


`Utterly captivating' --The Sunday Telegraph

`Informed but personal' --Art Review

Elegant ... seductive ... an interesting balance of familiar and unexpected pictures contributes to new readings ... the alternation between the historical and the contemporary, and the mix and match are immensly graceful and fun ... The commentaries, all by Hunt, are remarkable --Photography and Culture

As you turn the pages Hunt's singular hunger for things unseen exposes something rather captivating, a rich visual fugue, interlacing pain, pleasure and pathos ... much of the pleasure to be had comes from its pairings, which are often witty and always revealing ... [the photos] plumb eras and fashions, leaving the significance of this extraordinary collection undisputed --The World of Interiors

Put together with exquisite taste ... a seductive text in the form of personal-sounding notes [that] make browsing the book a compelling experience ... This is a book of stillnesses and depths that doesn't takes its readers for fools ... a wonderful book --The Art Newspaper

A wonderful selection of images ... a great anthology. But combined with the brilliant text that accompanies it we are taken through a maze of ideas that investigates the powerful psychological depths which visual language can reach ... lovingly curated with great verve and I'm sure will become an instant classic, to be treasured for many years to come --For London Independent Photography

Incredible ... tactile and imaginative with depth and emotion --Hotshoe International

This is a worthy addition top any bookshelf and is essential reading for anyone interested in Rauschenberg's life and work --Amateur Photographer
