[Mock-up for an unpublished artist’s photo book]. [U.S.A.] : Gaby Semo, [c.1980]. Quarto (305 x 230 mm), unbound, black card “wrappers”, the upper wrapper with title and artist’s name printed in white with original photograph onlaid, [4] preliminary sheets (including printed titles), followed by [34] sheets each with an original black-and-white photographic print on matte paper; the prints are in various formats up to 225 x 150 mm and have no accompanying text; the title of the work is ironic, as Swiss-born American photographer Semo’s work explores themes of female body image perception, both through fantasies of public exhibitionism and the intimate gaze.
