Swiss binding. Publisher's description: One of the most interesting facets of Christine Ljubanovic's remarkable artistic career is her series of black-and-white Conversation Portraits, so named because the compositions of twenty-four or thirty-six individual portraits of artists; writers; dancers; curators; film, theater, and museum directors; and other friends form narratives of her encounters with them. Christine Ljubanovic: Conversation Portraits brings together sixty of the portraits taken over the past forty years. Among those pictured are Yoko Ono; Thomas Hirschhorn; painter Arnulf Rainer; photographer Gisele Freund; Alfred Pacquement, director of the Centre Pompidou; and poet and novelist Raoul Schrott, who has also contributed a poem to the book. In each case, Ljubanovic and the subject of the portrait chose the meeting place together so that it conveys something of the personality of the subject and provides a framework for the photographic conversation. In addition to composed studio portraits, Ljubanovic's photographs therefore show her subjects against the backdrop of theaters, museums, street scenes, city parks, and Parisian cafes.
