Poste Restante, 1967

Christer Stromholm

Stockholm: P.A. Norstedt & Soners Forlag. 4to (8 1/8 x 9 ¾ in.) in cloth. Titles to spine and cover in silver. Contains 96 black and white photographs. Dust jacket has been repaired and, along with the book itself, is in very good condition. 

First edition of Christer Stromholm’s important photobook of the late 1960s, Poste Restante, whose jarring photographs of blighted cityscapes and urban decay presented in all their discord the contrasts and juxtapositions of urban life. His minimalistic black and white compositions, his eye for the iconic, and his documentation of the marginal, liminal thresholds of cities, exerted a lasting influence on Scandinavian photography and street photography world-wide. His documentation of prostitutes at the Place Blanche in Paris, along with Poste Restante, are enduring testaments to the power of photography. Poste Restante is widely considered to be among the greatest photography books of all time.
