About This Item

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, , 1986. Brossura (wrappers). Molto buono (Very Good). Un testo e 130 fotografie a colori e in bianco e nero, di cui 4 ripiegate più volte, di Bruce Weber. Disegni a colori di Richard Giglio. 4to (cm 36,5x28). pp. 196 n.n. Molto buono (Very Good). Quarta di copertina leggermente scolorita lungo i bordi (Back cover lightly faded along the edges). Prima edizione (First Edition). Fotolibri1 [Roth, 2001] Roth Andrew, The book of 101 books. PPP Editions - Roth Horowitz, 2001. “O Rio De Janeiro” (1986) was a highly influential book set in the famous Brazilian city and its environs. Its release was accompanied by an exhibition at Robert Miller Gallery which traveled throughout the United States. As described in the Vince Aletti's “100 Books,” O Rio “brought all the elements of Weber's commercial work together and was the first to incorporate the vivacious pastiche of original and borrowed material that had become the signature of his issue-filling spreads in Per Lui and L'Uomo Vogue. Weber turned his trademark fiction of youthful exuberance and sexy camaraderie into a fast-paced montage intercut with landscapes, still lifes, news photos, family snapshots, and drawings by Richard Giglio. An extended portrait of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu champion Rickson Gracie ground the book in a passage of documentary realness…but O Rio is most successful as a carefully planned act of seduction.” "O Rio De Janeiro" (1986) è stato un libro molto influente, ambientato nella famosa città brasiliana e nei suoi immediati dintorni. La sua uscita è stata accompagnata da una mostra alla Robert Miller Gallery che ha viaggiato in tutti gli Stati Uniti. Come descritto nei "100 Books" di Vince Aletti, "O Rio" ha riunito tutti gli elementi del lavoro commerciale di Weber ed è stato il primo a dare vita al vivace pastiche di materiale originale e materiale preso in prestito che era diventato la firma delle sue pubblicazioni in Per Lui e L'Uomo Vogue. Weber ha trasformato la sua esuberanza giovanile e il cameratismo sexy in un montaggio frenetico, con paesaggi, nature morte, foto di cronaca, istantanee di famiglia e disegni di Richard Giglio. Un ritratto del campione brasiliano di Jiu Jitsu Rickson Gracie ha regalato al libro anche un passaggio di fotografia documentaria.. ma O Rio è piuttosto un atto di seduzione attentamente pianificato".
