APERTURE

Sergio Larrain

Published by Aperture
Edited by Agnès Sire. Text by Gonzalo Leiva Quijada.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Sergio Larrain</I>.A notoriously reclusive artist, Sergio Larrain (1931–2012) has nonetheless become a touchstone for those who have come to know and love his work, including authors Roberto Bolaño and Julio Cortázar. Celebrated by Henri Cartier-Bresson, his contemporary and a co-founder of Magnum, Larrain’s experimental process yielded images that transformed the fixed nature of the medium. His images have left generations of viewers in awe of the simultaneous serenity and spontaneity that a camera can capture--when placed, that is, in the hands of an artist with such rare meditative passion. “A good image is born from a state of grace,” the artist once explained. Sergio Larrain, a selection of more than 200 images, rectifies Larrain’s omission from the canon of significant twentieth-century photographers, and combines his work in Latin America with photographs taken in Europe. Following a creatively fertile period in the 1950s and 60s, Larrain put away his camera and devoted himself to the solitary pursuit of spiritual mysticism, a decision that further contributed to his reputation as a romantic, a “fatal personage,” in the words of Bolaño. Created with the encouragement of Larrain’s family, the book is sumptuously produced, designed by Xavier Barral and edited by Agnès Sire, who enjoyed a long correspondence with the photographer and has worked with Magnum on preserving his photographic estate.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

photo-eye

Jeffrey Ladd

Having been a self-proclaimed Sergio Larrain junkie for long while, I heard about and waited patiently for this book’s release date. I wondered if there would be images that haven’t been published before. I didn’t realize that 1/2 the book would be of images new to me - and the best part is, much of it is even better than the work I had known.

The Guardian

Sean O'Hagan

A book full of beautiful, often bravely experimental street images, it should go some way towards elevating the reclusive photographer into the canon of 20th-century greats.

The New York Times Book Review

Luc Sante

...for the decade or so that he was in the world and regularly taking pictures, his work, as amply illustrated in 'Sergio Larrain' edited by Agnes Sire, was a constant source of wonder.

Best of 2013: Sergio Larrain

Best of 2013: Sergio LarrainIn the New York Times 2013 Holiday Book Review, Luc Sante writes, "Sometimes the world of photography books can seem not unlike that of popular music on disc, with endless repackaging of the classics — each new volume containing pictures that haven’t been previously reprinted, so that if you are a devotee or a completist you will have to shell out for another tome. And yet major surprises continue to arrive, dispatches from the past. Consider, for example, the work of the Chilean photographer Sergio Larrain (1931-2012), whose career was both extraordinary and unusually abbreviated. It was only after studying forestry at Berkeley that he began seriously taking pictures in the mid-1950s, and then an encounter with the Bolivian mystic Oscar Ichazo in 1968 caused him to retreat for the remainder of his life into meditation and yoga, taking small, quiet photos only occasionally, as complements to his inner quest. But for the decade or so that he was in the world and regularly taking pictures, his work, as amply illustrated in Sergio Larrain (Aperture), edited by Agnès Sire, was a constant source of wonder." continue to blog
