UNE FEMME HABITÉE, SIGNED BY THE PHOTOGRAPHER
SACABO, Joséphine. Une Femme Habitée. [Paris]: Marval, (1991). Slim folio, original gray cloth, original photographic dust jacket. $250.
First edition of 46 striking and provocative images of a draped female figure, signed by Sacabo on the title page.
This series was inspired by the epic poem “Altazor” by the Chilean poet Vincente Huidobro, who relates the journey of a cosmic being through the universe—what he saw and what he felt. “I decided to tell the same story with one woman in one room. The images are illuminated moments of her spiritual journey through the darkness, much like Altazor’s from star to star.”
