Rare Book Collection 2007
This event has ended.
The Rare Book Collection will be held again this year, featuring a valuable selection of out-of-print photograph collections. This year, in addition to rare books, original photographs will be on display and the venue will be set up like an international art photography fair such as Paris Photo or New York's The Photography Show. This year's theme is "the history of art photography as seen through photograph collections."
In recent years, photograph collections have come to be recognized as art, in addition to being valuable sources of information. In Europe and America, catalogues for the purpose of introducing photograph collections are published often, and museums also hold exhibitions that center on photograph collections. In this exhibition, approximately 100 out-of-print rare books will be on display.
Collections on display will include:
Cartier-Bresson's "The Decisive Moment" (published 1952)
An original of William Klein's "New York" (1956)
An early version of Robert Frank's "The Americans" (1969)
Garry Winogrand's "Women are Beautiful" (1975)
Bruce Weber's "O Rio de Janeiro" (1986)
David Bailey "Birth of the Cool" (1999)
