Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0972707301, Hardcover)This is the LIMITED EDITION of Irina Ionesco's EVA: ELOGE DE MA FILLE. The book is lavishly bound in pink satin, with silver gilt-edged pages and a pink satin bookmark ribbon. This Limited Edition of only 600 copies is presented in a beautiful clamshell case elegantly finished in the same pink satin. Designed to appeal to book collectors and fervent admirers of Ionesco's photographs, this special edition of EVA is a treasure for all time.
The EVA project originated in 1965 when the esteemed photographer Irina Ionesco began photographing her young daughter, Eva Ionesco. Thus began a collaboration which culminated in this extraordinary testament to the beauty of a girl child as witnessed through the lens of her mother's eye. Never before in the history of photography has an artist of this magnitude photographed her child to such stunning effect.
Weaving threads of baroque orientalism, gothic eroticism and surrealist fantasy, these mysterious images might well be controversial, but only if removed from the crucible of "dark love" which so ably contains and ferments them.
Ionesco insists "The liberty I took in baring her is innocent....in my gaze the greatest love of all took place"
Ionesco's photographs of her daughter Eva have been widely acclaimed since the 1970's. "EVA: Eloge de ma Fille" gathers 124 of these images into the definitive volume of Eva photographs.
