The Opéra

Collector's Edition

This Collector’s Edition accompanied the first edition of The Opéra. The two motifs by the artists Jo Schwab (30.4 × 40.7 cm) and Bear Kirkpatrick (40.6 × 23.2 cm) are signed and numbered and available in an edition of 5 + 1AP. A first edition of The Opéra. Volume I comes with an edition photograph.

The aesthetic and cultural wealth and the long tradition and classical status of opera as a high-art function here as an inspirational metaphor for a volume of photographs published annually and which deals with the most sensitive and direct kind of portrait: nude photography: the human body as both stage and theatre play. The publisher Matthias Straub presents a rich spectrum of large and small portrayals, with both young nude photographers and classic works by living and dead masters of this field.

The edition consists of a strictly limited original color photograph and the accompanying publication:  THE OPÉRA. Volume I.
