21st Editions

I am very excited to announce that John Cleary Gallery is the exclusive Texas dealer for 21ST Editions! I have worked with Lance Speer and Steve Albahari many times through the years, and I am looking forward to representing their beautiful publications on a larger scale.

If you are not familiar with 21ST Editions, I invite you to visit their website at http://www.21stphotography.com/ to read about the handcrafted bindings, letterpress printing, and stunning platinum and silver gelatin prints that go into books of incomparable beauty and quality. I will be featuring the one-of-a-kind Journal Plate Set and the 21ST Editions Master Collection at AIPAD. The Master Collection is each and every book and portfolio created by 21ST Editions over the last 12 years (33 fine press books and 116 signed free-standing prints). It is unsurpassed in its craftsmanship, artistry and, of course, subject, with artists ranging from Joel-Peter Witkin to (our current exhibiting artist) Jefferson Hayman, Sally Mann to ParkeHarrison. Many of the volumes are avaieffersonlable individually, though a large number are sold out - the most recent 21ST Editions publication, Jerry Uelsmann's Moth and Bonelight, which included ten original signed 16x20 silver prints mounted on 20x24 removable aluminum "pages," sold out in just 24 hours!

The works of art 21ST Editions creates are not just for collectors of books - these pieces are for anyone who loves fine art photography. Please let me know if you'd like more information on any of the titles listed on the 21ST Editions web site, and stop by and see me at booth 118 at the Park Avenue Armory March 18-21 for AIPAD to view the work for yourself.
