Dali : Photographs by Robert Whitaker

£75.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Privately Printed, Lindfield, 1994. Folio, First Edition, with numerous fine photographs (many full-page) throughout original photographic wrappers, unstitched in portfolio form, a near fine copy. This rare assembly of Whitaker's outstanding photographs of Dali appears here for the first time.
One of his most famous subjects was a longtime hero, the doyen of surrealism, Salvador Dalí, whom he photographed several times between 1967 and 1972. He first met Dalí at his Spanish mansion and told him that he wanted to use his camera "to get inside his head".
Whitaker: "I said: 'I'll photograph inside every hole I can find'. I started by photographing his ears, then inside his mouth and up his nose."
The photos he took include three extreme close-ups of Dalí, plus one of Whitaker's wife Susie basking topless under the Spanish sun alongside the artist. The extreme close-ups were the first steps towards a photographic style that he finally developed fully in the 1990s, a concept he called the "Whitograph", shooting extreme close-ups with all 36 exposures of a roll of film to create a single portrait.
Size - 50cm x 35cm, loose leaf pages. Good condition, very mild scuffing along top and bottom edges of loose cover.
