“EVERYBODY HAS A STORY ABOUT CHET BAKER”: FIRST EDITION OF BRUCE WEBER’S LET’S GET LOST
WEBER, Bruce. Let’s Get Lost: A Film Journal Starring Chet Baker. [New York: Little Bear Films, 1988]. Folio, original wire-stitched photographic self-wrappers. $2200.
First edition of the companion piece to Weber’s movie about legendary trumpeter Chet Baker.
“Arguably the most influential contemporary fashion and celebrity photographer, Bruce Weber works in a style combining neoclassic mannerism (Beaton, Horst, Hoyningen-Huene) and naturalistic reportage” (Roth). This photographic documentary is the companion piece in book form to Weber’s movie about the legendary trumpeter Chet Baker, nominated by the Academy for best feature documentary of 1988. The volume successfully conveys Weber’s idea of a “leisurely, spontaneous photographic journal.” Roth, 254.
A fine copy, with only a nick to top of spine, as usual.
