Signed limited edition book of only 100. A stunning series of photographs by Carrie Mae Weems. The harder you look at Carrie Mae Weemss Slow Fade to Black blurred, soft-focus images of mid-20th century stars like Marian Anderson, Dorothy Dandridge, Billie Holiday and Eartha Kitt the more you see. As the title suggests, these striking, ethereal images, several of which appeared in Weemss retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum in New York in 2014, play on the concept of the cinematic fade, the transition of an image to or from a blank screen.
The freeze-frame makes it impossible to tell whether the scenes are fading out or fading in whether the women themselves are disappearing or materializing. Pristine condition, signed on the back cover and numbered 17/100 in the colophon. Highly collectible and not available as a trade edition. This listing is for the book only and does not include a print.
