“PHOTOGRAPH HERE/THERE… RECTO-VERSO AT”: DOWNSBROUGH’S AND
DOWNSBROUGH, Peter. And. (Hamburg: Anatol AV und Filmproduktion, 1977). 12mo, original printed stiff paper wrappers; pp. . $300.
First edition of this avant garde experiment in graphic and textual layout, with 20 black-and-white photographs, most full-page, of settings urban and rural.
Downsbrough is a Brussels-based conceptual artist “known for his challenging photography, sculpture and installed works” (Exhibitions International). The images, lines, blank space and few words in And challenge expectations of what the object we so casually call “a book” is—and can be.
Joints lightly rubbed. A very nearly fine copy. Scarce.
