“IMPRESSIONISTIC AND PAINTERLY”: LUC DELAHAYE’S WINTERREISE, WITH 144 COLOR PHOTOGAPHS

DELAHAYE, Luc. Winterreise [Winter Journey]. (London: Phaidon, 2003). Small quarto, original stiff white wrappers, original photographic dust jacket. $150.

First edition in softcover of Delahaye’s “richly colored” photobook of post-communist Russia (Parr & Badger II), with 144 vibrant color photographs, most double-page.

Magnum photographer Luc Delahaye traveled across the barren landscapes of Russia “in the winter of 1998, from Moscow to Vladivostok” to create this profoundly poetic, “richly coloured… impressionistic and painterly” view of post-communist Russia (Parr & Badger II:256). Recalling his “four months in a Russian winter, observing humanity at its most abject,” the award-winning French journalist described the experience as unexpectedly “uplifting. ‘I came out of this voyage somewhat transformed,’ he said. ‘I had the impression of being larger like the Russians. Like Russia itself” (New York Times). Preceded by 2000 first edition.

A fine copy.
