Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin – Ghetto (signed)
Trolley Books – 2003
Very good condition, first edition, signed by both artists
This is a journey through 12 modern ghettos, starting in a refugee camp in Tanzania and ending in a forest in Patagonia. In each of these places, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, as editors and photographers of Colors magazine, methodically documented their inhabitants, and asked them the same questions : How did you get here ? Who is in power ? Where do you go to be alone ? To make love ? To get your teeth fixed ? For many of those photographed it was their first time in front of a camera. Some looked into it with a Nard, penetrating gaze. Others obeyed the ritual of photography with smiles. And Mario, on the cover, turned his back on the camera and waited for the shutter to click.
