FIERET, Gerard.
Foto’s.
Eindhoven: Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum, 1976.
£450

(270 x 210 mm), pp.[36]. 37 black-and-white photographs, introduction by R. H. Fuchs. Black-and-white photo-illustrated saddle-stitched wrappers, cream, text in black; lightly toned and soiled, shallow scratch to upper side. Inscribed by Fieret in blue ink to inside cover. Very good.

First edition, presentation copy. In the late 1950s Fieret began creating a body of work consisting mostly of self-portraits, candid photographs of women and female nudes. In the late 1970s he stopped taking photographs and worked solely with existing images from his archive, re-cropping and creating composites and montages. Interest in his work has grown steadily, and with the increased interest an increasingly concerned Fieret began prominently stamping and signing the front of his prints so as to protect the integrity of his ideas. This catalogue presents a good selection of Fieret’s work before the obsessive stamping began.
