Presents Willem Diepraam's "Lomo De Corvina, Panamerica Sur, Lima, Peru, 1990". His iconic photograph of a hapless boy being chased by a pack of wild dogs. The craggy, dotted landscape is streaked with long, undulating gray lines, as if by design, giving the image a powerful, abstract character. It looms over the tiny subjects and appears to envelop them, the Universal and the Particular merging as One. The photograph is named after the place where the incident actually took place, was witnessed, and captured permanently on film by Willem Diepraam (he will not reveal if the dogs caught up with the boy and killed him; we have to think that they did hence the image's menacing power). As one has come to expect of a photographer who is both a moralist and a formalist, the image is an aesthetic triumph as well as a genuine evocation of unmitigated horror. His most celebrated image, it is beautifully reproduced as a doublespread in the monograph, "Willem Diepraam" (2001). Willem Diepraam is a Dutch photojournalist who has published several books in Europe, none of which is available in the United States. Knowledge of his brilliant work is long overdue here. An absolute "must-have" print for Willem Diepraam collectors. This is a copy of the Limited Edition, and it is very boldly and beautifully signed, titled, and dated in black ink-pen on verso (visible through the Plexiglas mounting on the back) by the photographer: "Willem Diepraam LOMO DE CORVINA, PANAMERICA SUR, LIMA, PERU, 1990" . This vintage print is a photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only copy available online, is elegantly and archivally framed, and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies of the Limited Edition are now in private hands or public collections. This particular print was obtained from Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago, the photographer's American gallery, and comes with Certificate of Provenance from us. As archivally framed and mounted by the gallery, it weighs 20 pounds. A rare signed vintage print thus. 1 original print. One of the most brilliant photographers of our time. A fine collectible print. (SEE ALSO OTHER WILLEM DIEPRAAM TITLES IN OUR CATALOG).
