UK Guide for Prospective Buyers Each Phillips auction is governed by the applicable Conditions of Sale and Authorship Warranty. All prospective bidders should read these sections carefully. They govern the purchasing agreement under which you buy at auction from Phillips. They may be also amended by saleroom addendum or auctioneer’s announcement during the auction. The complete Conditions of Sale and Authorship Warranty applicable to this auction (Version 9/12/17) are found online at phillips.com, along with detailed information on each lot. Estimates The auction estimates indicated for each lot in this catalogue do not include Buyer’s Premium (applicable on each lot), or VAT or Artist’s Resale Right (where such charges apply). Details of these charges are given below. All Lots are Subject to ‘Buyer’s Premium’ In addition to the hammer (final bid) price, a buyer’s premium is due from all successful buyers. The buyer’s premium is a commission based on the hammer price payable by the buyer as part of the total purchase price at the following rates: 25% of the hammer price up to and including £180,000; 20% of the portion of the hammer price above £180,000 up to and including £3,000,000; and 12.5% of the portion of the hammer price above £3,000,000. Condition and Condition Reports Phillips does not warrant or guarantee condition on any lot. Solely as a convenience to clients, Phillips may provide condition reports on many lots, which are also available online on the lot detail pages. If there is not a condition report available, that is not a representation that a lot is in perfect condition. While condition reports are prepared honestly and carefully, our staff are not professional restorers or trained conservators. We therefore encourage all prospective buyers to inspect all lots at our pre-sale exhibitions, and contact our staff with any questions. Bidding at Auction You may bid in the auction in person, online, on the phone, or by placing an absentee bid. The easiest way to arrange or register to bid at auction is to set up a client account online. Go to our homepage, phillips.com and fill out the account form. When you want to register for an auction, click Register on sale pages or lot detail pages, and you’ll confirm your account details, be asked for a credit card number for identification purposes and our Bids Department will process your request. We recommend registering at least 24 hours prior to sale to ensure that you can bid. Good luck! Some lots are sold under special conditions. Phillips uses the following symbols to designate these lots: O ◊ Guaranteed Property The seller of lots designated with the symbol O has been guaranteed a minimum price fnanced solely by Phillips. Where the guarantee is provided by a third party or jointly by us and a third party, the property will be denoted with the symbols O ◊. When a third party has fnanced all or part of our fnancial interest in a lot, it assumes all or part of the risk that the lot will not be sold and will be remunerated via a fxed fee, a percentage of the hammer price or the buyer’s premium or some combination of the foregoing. The third party may bid on the guaranteed lot during the auction. If the third party is the successful bidder, the

UK_PHOTO_NOV17_2-55_2R.indd 4

remuneration may be netted against the purchase price. Where Phillips has guaranteed a minimum price on every lot in the catalogue, Phillips will not designate each lot with the symbol(s) for the guaranteed property but will state our fnancial interest at the front of the catalogue. ∆ Property in Which Phillips Has an Ownership Interest Lots with this symbol indicate that Phillips owns the lot in whole or in part or has an economic interest in the lot equivalent to an ownership interest. •No Reserve Unless indicated by a •, all lots in this catalogue are offered subject to a reserve. A reserve is the confidential value established between Phillips and the seller and below which a lot may not be sold. The reserve for each lot will not exceed the low pre-sale estimate. ♠ Property Subject to the Artist’s Resale Right Lots marked with ♠ are subject to the Artist’s Resale Right calculated as a percentage of the hammer price (in EUR) and payable as part of the purchase price as follows: Royalty Rate: From 0 to 50,000 (4%) From 50,000.01 to 200,000 (3%) From 200,000.01 to 350,000 (1%) From 350,000.01 to 500,000 (0.5%) Exceeding 500,000 (0.25%) The Artist’s Resale Right applies where the hammer price is EUR 1,000 or more, subject to a maximum royalty per lot of EUR 12,500. Calculation of the Artist’s Resale Right will be based on the pounds sterling/euro reference exchange rate quoted on the date of the sale by the European Central Bank. †, §, ‡, or Ω Property Subject to VAT Where there is no VAT symbol, Phillips is able to use the Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme and VAT will not normally be charged on the hammer price. An amount equivalent to VAT at 20% on the buyer’s premium will be included in the buyer’s premium. Property with a † symbol will be sold under normal UK VAT rules, and VAT will normally be charged at 20% on both the hammer price and buyer’s premium. Property with a § symbol and sold to buyers whose registered address is in the EU will be assumed to be remaining in the EU and will be treated as having no symbol (unless informed otherwise by a buyer). Property sold with a ‡ (5%) or Ω (20%) symbol has been imported from outside the EU to be sold at auction under temporary admission, and offered under the Auctioneer’s Margin Scheme at the respective % on the hammer price and an amount in lieu of VAT at 20% on the buyer’s premium. The foregoing is for summary purposes only. Please see the online auction catalogue and Conditions of Sale at phillips.com/ buy and specifically the section ‘VAT AND OTHER TAX INFORMATION FOR BUYERS’ for a more detailed description of the VAT symbols used in this Buyer’s Guide, as well as any VAT refunds that you may be qualified to receive.

Latin America

Phillips is proud to present another high-calibre selection of works by important Latin American artists. All of the featured works are fresh to the market, including a number of rare prints from the 1970s and 80s. Spanning nearly four decades of image-making, these works represent the widely diferent ways in which these photographers responded to the complexities of life in the region. Highlights range from Colombian artist Fernell Franco’s experimental photomontage from his frst series Prostitutas (lot 2) and Argentinian artist Adriana Lestido’s highly emotive portrait of an imprisoned woman (lot 3) to a provocative portrait of a transvestite prostitute by Chilean artist Paz Errázuriz (lot 1). Recent works include Mexican artist Pablo López Luz’s aerial image of Mexico City’s urban sprawl (lot 11). Both Errázuriz and López Luz are appearing at auction for the frst time. Decades of uncovering photographic work from this region culminated in two groundbreaking museum shows in 2013 to 2014: América Latina 1960-2013 at Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris and Museo Amparo, Mexico and Urbes Mutantes: Latin American Photography 1944-2013 at Museo de Arte del Banco de la República, Bogotá and the International Center of Photography, New York. Works by the Latin American artists featured in our selection reside in a number of public collections, including Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris and Tate Modern, London. We are excited to ofer collectors a unique opportunity to acquire these museum quality works as the Latin American photography market unfolds.

Between 1982 and 1987, Paz Errázuriz collaborated with journalist Claudio Donoso on the series Adam’s Apple, documenting male sex workers and transvestites in brothels in Santiago and Talca. Through Errázuriz’s photographs and Donoso’s transcription of their stories, the life of this community and the ways in which these individuals maintained control of their bodies in the shadow of the Pinochet dictatorship were revealed. Evelyn, the subject of the present work, features prominently in the series. Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid holds another early print of this image, and later prints reside in the collections of Museum of Modern Art, New York and Tate Modern, London.

Ortiz is interested in documenting the formal elements he fnds in urban environments. In BoquerĂłn, shooting in fve-minute intervals, he systematically photographs the celestial changes in the horizon near MedellĂ­n, meticulously documenting the time and place between each shot and noting the diferences and similarities along the horizon line.

‘It is centred on movement, on displacements, including those made in order to reach that place that one thinks is his/her own. And it is that small place, that square meter that has generated a thousand migrant stories that populate the world in all directions. The images from this period were conceived as signs and metaphors of the man in transit.’ Graciela Sacco In the present work, Sacco uses a self-developed photographic process, which she calls ‘heliography’. This technique, involving light-sensitive chemicals, a handmade apparatus and sunlight, was applied to imprint the shoes and the wooden bottom of the cube with a gridded pattern, reminiscent of tiles. These are encased within a mirrored cube with metal sides and a light is afxed to the top. The installation is best viewed at eye level, in a darkened room with the overhanging light illuminating the shoes below. Looking into the box, the result is a captivating illusion of infnitely repeating shoes.

Mexican, b. 1942 Lot 4

Dutch-born photographer Gertjan Bartelsman has lived in Colombia since 1950. In the 1970s, he worked as a photographer in advertising and journalism before pursuing his own projects. Travelling around Colombia, Bartelsman photographed his subjects on buses and trains, in bars, cantinas and at work. The resulting images showcase his ability to capture intimate moments in urban life. Bartelsman has exhibited internationally, participating twice in the Venice Biennale.

Paz Errázuriz began taking photographs in the 1970s during the Pinochet dictatorship and continued documenting the social landscape of her native Chile in subsequent decades. She is known for her ability to capture the resoluteness of the regime’s marginalised victims in intimate portraits. Errázuriz was the frst Latin American woman photographer to be ofered a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1986 and was awarded the Prix Madame Figaro at the Rencontres d’Arles in 2017.

One of Mexico’s foremost living artists, Graciela Iturbide explores everyday life in Mexico through photography. She has repeatedly visited the Mexican town of Chalma, famous for its religious festivities, to document traditional rituals, ofen involving elements of death and the grotesque. Iturbide studied under Manuel Álvarez Bravo at the Centro Universitario de Estudios Cinematográfcos, part of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, and later worked as his assistant. She received the Hasselblad Award in 2008 and has exhibited at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; Fundación Mapfre, Madrid; and Tate Modern, London.

Fernell Franco Facundo De Zuviría Argentinian, b. 1954 Lot 5

Facundo de Zuviría lives and works in Buenos Aires, exploring the urban landscape in his photographs. The series Siesta Argentina – created in the period following the Argentinian crisis at the end of 2001 – illustrates a city devoid of people and activities during midafernoon siesta. These images of storefronts in Buenos Aires draw attention to the difering patterns found on the building facades. De Zuviría has received multiple awards, including the prestigious Konex Award for his contributions to Argentinian visual arts in 1992 and again in 2012. His work has been exhibited at institutions worldwide, including the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris and the International Center of Photography, New York.

Argentinian, b. 1956 Lot 12

Colombian, b. 1947 Lot 8

Pablo López Luz explores the relationship between humans and their environment in his landscapes with a focus on his home town of Mexico City. His experimentations with vantage points and framing challenge our way of engaging with a landscape. López Luz has exhibited at a number of institutions, including the International Center of Photography in New York and Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris and his work is held at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Museo de Arte Moderno, Mexico City.

Graciela Sacco addresses some of contemporary society’s biggest problems – famine, displacement, homelessness, violence and corruption – in her photographic, video and installation work. She has developed her own photographic technique, which she calls ‘heliography’, and experiments with various supports from paper and canvas to wood and rubber. Sacco represented Argentina at the 1996 Bienal de São Paulo and the 2001 Venice Biennale. She has exhibited at the Museum of Fine Art, Houston; Museo de Arte Moderno, Buenos Aires; and Maison de l’Amérique Latine, Paris.

Sergio Trujillo began working with photography in the 1960s. His series Muros Colombianos (1972-79) illustrates the beauty found in debris, capturing Colombian society through photographs of torn posters on walls in public places. Trujillo has made several flms and has taught photography, design and visual expression at the Universidad de Bogotá Jorge Tadeo Lozano. Since 1983, he has managed Sergio Trujillo Dávila y Cía, designing audiovisual programs in video and multi-image systems.

This intriguing image is from William Eggleston’s celebrated Los Alamos series. Named afer the nuclear testing site in New Mexico, Los Alamos consists of images taken between 1965-1974 across the southern United States, from New Orleans to Santa Monica. Eggleston’s observation of beauty captures unexpected moments in the everyday world surrounding him. In the present work, the contrast of the cold fuorescent light against the intense darkness of the motel room demonstrates Eggleston’s ability to create arresting compositions from unremarkable settings. This was one of 75 images, selected from over 2,000 negatives, that were published in the 2003 Los Alamos portfolio.

In his Sterne series (1989 -1992), Thomas Ruf takes the objectivity of documentation in photography into a dialogue between reality and art. Using high-resolution negatives obtained from the archives of the European Southern Observatory, Ruf cropped, printed and repositioned the negatives of the night sky above Chile. In the present work, we experience the transformation from scientifc document to art, whereby a seemingly objective image is viewed as abstracted beauty. The work confronts us with our tendency to impose what we think we see. When we look at a star in the night sky, we are not seeing the actual star itself, but a trace of light travelling across time and space. And that too is what defnes a photograph – light traces on paper of something that no longer exists.

In a large black dress that engulfs her body, a woman appears to be hanging mid-air, grasping a long white scroll of paper, set against a black background. Denied insight into the staging of this image, we see her dangling in front of us, resisting gravity. The woman is Helena Almeida. This is not self-portraiture, but a composition on the body and how it inhabits space. Made in 1982, the same year that Almeida participated in the Venice Biennale for the frst time, Ponto de Fuga (Vanishing Point) is one of two works that share this title of which the variant was shown in Venice that summer. Since 1969, Almeida has produced photographs that are mainly in black and white. To create these painstakingly detailed works, she begins with preparatory drawings of choreography that she faithfully follows in the studio. She then flms herself, observing how her body moves and explores the space. Once perfected, her private performance is photographed by her husband Arthur Rosa. Refusing to be categorised, Almeida is not just photographer, painter, sculptor or performance artist, but all of these, treating herself as the canvas and using her body to paint and draw. She maintains that her body stands for all and any body, and is no longer her own. The present work was included in two major solo exhibitions at the Serralves Foundation in Porto (1996) and the Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea in Santiago del Compostela (2000), the latter using this image for their exhibition posters. Almeida has recently been the subject of two museum shows in 2015-2017, Helena Almeida: Corpus Serralves Foundation, Porto, which travelled to Jeu de Paume, Paris and Wiels, Brussels, and Helena Almeida: Work is Never Finished at the Art Institute of Chicago, her frst in the United States. These highlighted not only Almeida’s international reach, but the signifcance of her work in the narrative of 20th century image-making.

This oversized black-and-white photograph of a gigantic alligator skin purse with legs is undeniably Laurie Simmons. Walking Purse, 1988, created for her seminal series Walking and Lying Objects (1987-91), is one of only two instances where the object is worn by a real person. While this was her original intent for the series, she turned to using doll and mannequin legs out of necessity for the photographs that followed. The pair of legs we see here belong to her sister Bonnie who wore this human-size purse costume.

In the case of Walking Purse, Simmons has chosen an object that is a trope of femininity, drawing our attention to the signifed role of women. An alligator skin purse references not only the cost of being a woman but also the infuence of advertising and consumerism. Stereotypes of a woman and her handbag also come to mind: how she never leaves the house without it and how men fnd mystique in what she carries inside it. Inspired by an image of a cookie or cracker box on a pair of woman’s legs that she saw while visiting the ventriloquist Doug Skinner, and an early television commercial of dancing cigarette packages, Simmons’ series of ‘woman-as-object’ – a purse, a camera, an apple, a house, a gun – questions gender roles and stereotypes in American culture. Simmons, along with Cindy Sherman, Louise Lawler and Richard Prince, among others, is part of a group of artists known as the ‘Pictures Generation’. Infuenced by the theories of Jean Baudrillard, Roland Barthes and Laura Mulvey, they used appropriated imagery to reveal underlying social constructions. Simmons has exhibited internationally, including the Walker Art Centre, Whitney Biennial and Gothenburg Museum of Art. Her work is found in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Photographing found objects and appropriated imagery, Anne Collier questions the ways in which these images are presented and perceived, aiming to elicit ‘a sense of emotional or psychological uncertainty’ through her image-making process. In Eye (Enlargement of a Color Negative), 2007, she has photographed an open book, revealing a page with a full-bleed close up of a woman’s bright green eye with mascara painted eyelashes. She fattens the three-dimensional quality of the book by presenting it against a plain black background and cutting of the edge of the facing page. Eliminating many of the visual clues that identify what we are seeing, Collier’s approach to editing and framing is seemingly detached. This act of distancing herself, and in turn, the viewer from the physicality of existing objects creates a tension between what we see and how we perceive it.

Infuenced by the work of Cindy Sherman, Laurie Simmons and other ‘Pictures Generation’ artists, Collier questions and re-contextualises popular imagery and visual clichés as seen in the present work. Collier argues that in relation to photographic image making, the eye, a recurring motif in her work, ‘remains a compelling analogous image, simply because the camera approximates the mechanics of the eye and seeing to such an extraordinary degree.’ She challenges how photography structures our ways of seeing by drawing our attention to these mechanics. The title Eye (Enlargement of a Color Negative) connotes the darkroom processes, making us aware that we are looking at a photograph of a photograph. In this striking image of an eye, Collier transforms the object into the subject and asks us to join her in analysing the process of presentation and perception. Born in Los Angeles in 1970, Collier studied at the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), working with leading West Coast artists John Baldessari and Christopher Williams, among others. In 2014-2015, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, held her frst major institutional exhibition, which included another print of this image. Her work is held in such prominent institutions as Tate Modern, London; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Los Angeles County Museum; and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York.

Pushing boundaries and challenging her own fear as well as that of the viewer, much of Marina Abramović’s work deals with the limitations of the body. In recent years, she has focused more on mortality. ‘When you get to my age,’ she says, ‘you know you have to confront death. I want to die without anger, without fear and consciously, and these three things are not easy.’ In the present work, she brings death to the forefront in her use of the skull. This work is related to a performance piece, Nude with Skeleton (2002). Lying on the foor with a skeleton draped over her, she breathes life into it, forcing the viewer to confront that inevitable end. ‘Being so close to your skeleton,’ she explains, ‘breathing through and looking at, confronting it – it’s the way to deal with the fear.’ In Self Portrait with Skull, 2004, Abramović stands naked, facing the camera directly; her hair is brushed over her face and she holds a skull at her stomach. Concealing her own face, the skull is what the viewer confronts. This pose is repeated the following year in her video installation Balkan Erotic Epic, which examined the connection between eroticism and spirituality in Serbian folklore.

A woman and daughter sit at the kitchen table. The woman looks into her vanity mirror as she applies lipstick; the daughter copies her mother’s pose with her own mirror and lipstick. Although they are not looking at each other, they are synchronised in a shared act. In this seemingly intimate moment between mother and daughter, the woman is, in efect, teaching her daughter the gestures of femininity. When Carrie Mae Weems’s seminal Kitchen Table Series was published for the frst time as a stand-alone book in 2016, decades afer the completion of the series, it was this poignant image Untitled (Woman and daughter with makeup) that was chosen for the front cover. In 1990, Kitchen Table Series was one of the frst photographic series to place an African-American woman as its protagonist. For this body of work, Weems photographed herself and others at the kitchen table in her own apartment in Northampton, Massachusetts. Contrary to autobiographical self-portraits, her intention was to use her own body to represent all women. ‘She’s a character,’ Weems explains, ‘I use my body as a stand-in, but I never think of it as being about me. Rather, the character helps to reveal something that is more complicated about the lives of women.’ The story of a woman’s relationship with her friends, her lover, her children and herself as told through Weems’s timeless black-and-white photographs is ‘universal at its core’ and is as current today as it was when she frst created them. For more than three decades, Weems has explored the complexities of the African-American experience through photography, video and performance. In 2013, Weems was awarded a MacArthur ‘Genius’ Grant, and her solo exhibition Carrie Mae Weems: Three Decades of Photography and Video (2014), was the frst retrospective of an African-American woman at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. She has also exhibited at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo, Seville; and Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston. Her work is held in many prominent institutions, including Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Tate Modern, London; and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Created for her frst American museum show at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in 2013, Alex Prager’s Face in the Crowd series presents a manufactured reality flled with fctional characters, capturing the ambiguous experience of a crowded space. Photographing and flming simultaneously in four studios with several sets, including a beach, a street, an airport and a cinema, the scope of this project is greater than anything Prager has done to date. In the work ofered here, we are presented with a crowded beach scene. The beige ground is punctuated with bursts of colours that draw us to specifc individuals, inviting the viewer to wonder who they are and what happens next.

Kourtney Roy created her series California in 2015 for Louis Vuitton’s Fashion Eye, a collection of books on travel destinations captured by fashion photographers. Drawn to places where nature and civilisation coexist in search of what she calls ‘a beautiful accident’, Roy imagines a parallel universe inhabited by the characters she herself portrays. Her vison of California is sleek yet ofbeat with an underlying dark humour as embodied in the present photograph, taken at a drive-in cinema in Barstow along Route 66. The large white rectangle of the blank cinema screen is ofset by the fgure of Roy in the foreground, slumped in a bright turquoise lawn chair with outstretched arms and legs, appearing to gaze up at the empty screen. Inspired by cinema and flm stills, Roy seamlessly blends the real with artifce to create her images, transporting the viewer to another place and time. Nominated for the Prix de L’Elysée by the Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne in 2014, Roy has exhibited internationally and has been published widely. Her work is held in such prominent institutions as the Maison Européen de la Photographie, Paris and the Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne. Roy lives and works in Paris.

In Landscape 10/005, Michael Reisch presents the Matterhorn, instantly recognisable as an emblem of the Alps, as the archetypal mountain. Erasing all signs of social infrastructure such as alpine trails and huts, and rendering the sky as a white backdrop, Reisch isolates the mountain from its context. The resulting photograph looks real but feels not quite right. The ambiguity of scale and perspective achieved through his digital manipulations heightens the two-dimensionality of the image. In Reisch’s deconstructed reality, the formal elements – triangular shapes and symmetry – take centre stage. His formal approach to image-making creates a tension between real and artifcial, challenging us to see a landscape in a new way. A former student of Bernd Becher at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, Reisch has exhibited internationally and his work is held in many prominent collections, including Fotomuseum Winterthur, Switzerland; Los Angeles County Museum; and UBS Art Collection.

Three mornings with Muhammad Ali By John Stewart

Two franchisers of Muhammad Ali came to see me. They had seen a show of my work in New York and had suggested to Ali he should have me photograph him. I was summoned to Chicago to meet ‘The Greatest’.

I pulled out portraits, all of them in black and white, printed by means of a 19th-century method where the photographs are ofen mistaken for charcoal drawings. ‘Those are great drawin’s.’

On a beautiful spring day in 1977, I ring the door at Ali’s mansion, situated at the edge of a mixed black-and-white neighborhood. A giant in a white robe and a yellow turban bids me to enter. I pass in front of a throng of men – standing, sitting on the foor or on the stairway, waiting for an audience. Afer half an hour alone in a vast cream and gold room, lined with armchairs, I am shown the way downstairs. I pass through a tall Chinese portico fanked on one side by a stufed lion and on the other by a tiger. In the exercise room beyond the portico, dressed in a blue sports outft, Ali is sitting on a low stool, wiping his face with a towel. I didn’t have to introduce myself. Ali had been told. He didn’t even look up. I carried a large portfolio, which I set down against a wall. ‘It’s Ramadan,’ Ali said. ‘I’m tired. And hungry.’ I explained why I was there. ‘Show me.’

UK_PHOTO_NOV17_56-127_2R.indd 77

I explained they were in fact photographs. We worked steadily for three days, mornings only, in a flm studio I had rented. Ali always arrived on time, accompanied by friends, handlers and helpers. He was a real trouper and lent himself to all the demands, tricks and manipulations that a photographer pulls out of his bag. You had to be fast, however, because his attention span was very short – a matter of a minute, afer which he got bored and restless. The only instance Ali interfered was when the NBC television crew from New York arrived to record the sitting, and the producer tried to impose her directives. Ali warned her, ‘It’s John’s shoot. If you don’t behave yourself, you and your crew are out!’ The following day, we had lunch together. Not at home, but in a restaurant. When a couple of weeks later I returned to Chicago with the prints, he inscribed the one I liked best, of his arm extended and his beautiful fst with its wellshaped nails: ‘To John Stewart, Muhammad Ali, May 13-77 Love Always.’

Tkachenko, Restricted Areas, Stockport: Dewi Lewis Publishing, 2016, n.p.

‘What’s interesting for me is to witness what remains after the progress has ground to a halt.’

Over three winters between 2013 and 2015, Danila Tkachenko journeyed into the snowy depth of Russia, Bulgaria and Kazakhstan, covering more than 15,000 miles to photograph the remains of 33 abandoned Soviet projects. Restricted Areas takes its name from the ‘secret cities’ the USSR established for sensitive military projects. These ‘cities’ were top secret locations, closed to all outsiders and ofen not appearing in public records or on maps. Adopting a minimalist aesthetic and presenting these Cold War ruins against the bleak white backdrop of winter, Tkachenko creates surreal images lef over from another time and place. The present triptych presents three Soviet relics. On the lef is the only surviving prototype of the VVAT 14 airplane – an amphibian vehicle, designed in the 1970s, with vertical take-of, able to fy low over the sea and survey or attack US submarines. The futuristic architecture in the centre is the House-Monument of the Bulgarian Communist Party, constructed in the late 1970s to commemorate the accomplishments of Dimitar Blagoev, the founder of Bulgarian socialism. On the right is the world’s largest diesel submarine, a nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine deployed by the Soviet Navy in the 1980s, now landlocked in the Samara region. Together, these three photographs capture the dramatic remains of a collapsed civilization.

Tkachenko is a visual artist working in the feld of documentary photography. In 2015, he was awarded Burn Magazine’s Emerging Photography Fund and was selected for Foam Talent for this body of work. He also received the European Publishers Award for Photography, which led to the series being exhibited at the Rencontres d’Arles in 2016. Other works from the series are in the collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and SpallArt.

47. Michael Dweck

American, b. 1957

Triple Gidget from Sculptural Forms, 2015 Triptych comprised of three archival pigment prints on silk, polyurethane, resin, fbreglass. Accompanied by the artist’s aluminium wall-mounting brackets. Each: 197.6 x 53 cm (77 3/4 x 20 7/8 in.) Overall: 197.6 x 167.5 cm (77 3/4 x 65 7/8 in.) Signed, titled, dated and numbered 3/3 in paint on verso.

Suspended in the midnight waters of the Weeki Wachee River on Florida’s Gulf Coast, Michael Dweck’s titular ‘mermaid’ represents a connection to the past, and honours a long lineage of ‘river children’. Once underwater – where she can hold her breath for many minutes – her isolated glide into blackness is an absolute escape. In Sculptural Forms, Dweck transforms this fuidity into photographic sculptures. He frst prints his alluring mermaid with pigments on silk, places it on hand-shaped polyurethane foam then hand-coats it with fbreglass and layers of high-gloss resin. The resulting surfoardshaped sculpture seamlessly merges the subject and medium. Inspired by the Finish Fetish artists in 1960s LA, who used plastics and synthetic resins – materials used for surfoards and customised cars – in their art, Dweck comments, ‘This smooth fuid form becomes a vehicle that transports you to another place.’ Michael Dweck is an American visual artist and flmmaker best known for a series of narrative photographic projects that explore on-going struggles between identity and adaptation in endangered societal enclaves. Monographs include The End: Montauk, NY (2004), Mermaids (2008), and Habana Libre (2011). His current project, Blunderbust, explores all angles of a small-stakes Long Island racetrack via an ambitious mélange of photography, sculpture, installation, abstract painting, and a feature-length documentary.

Calvin Klein: In Conversation

We are honoured to collaborate with Calvin Klein to celebrate his rich legacy in conjunction with the release of his much anticipated frst book, published by Rizzoli. Together, we have selected three defning photographs to represent three seminal collaborations featured in his book: Steven Meisel’s CK One, New York City, 1994 for Calvin Klein Fragrance (lot 48); David Sims’s Kate, 1993 for Calvin Klein Underwear (lot 49); and Bruce Weber’s Carré Otis, San Francisco, CA, 1991 for Calvin Klein Jeans (lot 50). These images embody the Calvin Klein brand and its DNA – provocative, rebellious, minimalist, pure, modern – and defne an entire generation that experienced the consumer culture of the 1990s. This dedicated ofering stands as a testament to Klein’s revolutionary approach to fashion advertising and to the power of collaborative creativity. The three selected works are available for sale for the frst time and have been printed exclusively for ULTIMATE. We are excited to present collectors unparalleled access to exclusive photographs created by today’s leading image-makers in fashion who have defned and will continue to defne key moments in our social history.

Phillips’ Yuka Yamaji and Calvin Klein discussed his forthcoming book, creating campaigns and his passion for photography.

The Book

UK_PHOTO_NOV17_56-127_2R.indd 81

Yuka Yamaji: Your frst book is coming out this November. Why now?

YY: And how did you select the photographs to tell your story?

Calvin Klein: I’ve thought about it on and of for many years, but it was Anna Wintour and Kelly Klein, my exwife, who convinced me that I must do this. I speak at universities and realised most people I speak to know the name but don’t know exactly what I did. This book is a way to tell them. It’s really the story of my life.

CK: I went through over 40,000 images in my archives over the course of a year and edited them down. I sent them to Fabien Baron, the creative director I worked with for years. He said he saw diferent sides of me in the images – the minimalist and the rebellious side – and that’s how the images were fnally edited.

Steven Meisel and CK One

David Sims and Kate Moss

YY: What was your vision for the CK One campaign?

YY: How did you discover David Sims and his photography?

CK: The initial vision was inspired by a famous 1969 photograph by Dick [Richard] Avedon, Andy Warhol and Members of the Factory. YY: And why did you turn to Steven Meisel to launch this fragrance? CK: I wanted to capture a liberal and rebellious attitude, featuring unique people, for our new anti-perfume. I knew Steven could do that.

CK: David had been working with Guido [Palau, hair stylist] and Melanie Ward [stylist] who I knew well. When I saw David’s work I felt he had an authentic point of view. YY: You few Sims, Ward and Kate Moss from London to New York for your 1993 Calvin Klein Underwear campaign. What were you expecting? CK: Because David’s images were so ofhandedly cool, I knew that together we could capture the look I envisioned.

Working with Bruce Weber

Photography and Building a Brand

YY: Let’s turn to Bruce’s featured photograph of Carré Otis riding a motorcycle, shot for your 1991 Calvin Klein Jeans campaign. What was your vision for this campaign?

YY: You have created one of the world’s most recognisable brands. What role did photography and photographers play in building the Calvin Klein brand?

CK: I wanted to create an image which represented a genuine lifestyle.

CK: I’ve always had a passion for photography. When I was creating a product, it was knowing who the right photographer is, who the model is, and placing them in an environment to communicate my vision.

YY: So you felt Carré Otis embodied this? CK: We chose to shoot Carré because she was that strong and defant woman on the motorcycle. Matching the model with the mood is how you get to the truth in a photo.

For David Sims, photographing Kate Moss in 1993 for Calvin Klein Underwear – soon afer her debut with the brand – marked his frst major commercial moment as a fashion photographer. This photograph, taken against a stark white background, encapsulates the minimalism of the 90s that defned Sims’s aesthetic. Sims captures the fresh-faced young model as she looks coyly back at the camera, an icon on the cusp.

Calvin Klein recalls his vision for the campaign: I wanted to reach cool men and women all over the world of every age and every expression. Our marketing pushed the boundaries with fercely unique people – men, women, gay and straight, some with shaved heads, tattoos and body piercing. It was an exciting, modern statement – and an instant global sensation.

Sims was acknowledged twice, in 1994 and 1996, at the Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography. He has exhibited in a number of institutions, including the National Portrait Gallery, London, and Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, and his work is held in the collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum and Tate Modern in London.

The casting process was overseen by Meisel who selected both models and real people based on their personalities as much as their looks. In the present photograph, we can spot young Kate Moss and Stella Tennant among this tribe. Meisel’s panoramic photograph has a cinematic quality and is comprised of four individual scenes. Through cropping and framing, Meisel has created an almost surreal composition whereby some body parts have been cut of or appear conjoined. A master storyteller, he perfectly captures the chemistry of the group and its personalities – we can just about hear their chatter and raised voices of heated conversations. In his representation of the ‘timeless seduction of youth’, Meisel has captured a moment that is emblematic of the 1990s yet feels modern and relevant today.

Bruce Weber’s striking photograph of Carré Otis riding a motorbike was taken for the 1991 Calvin Klein Jeans campaign. This unique oversized gelatin silver print was made exclusively for this auction. Here, Bruce shares his recollections on the making of this photograph. The Location ‘I really love San Francisco and the surrounding landscape. When I would visit, I loved hanging out in Jeanette Etheredge’s bar Tosca and people I met there would say, “You should do a campaign here.” So when the Calvin sitting came up, I thought it would be a good place to do those kinds of pictures.’ The Inspiration ‘My sister was a big part of the music world – she worked with David Bowie for years – and when I was just starting out, she would bring me backstage and on tours with her. I was lucky to meet and photograph lots of rock groups and I wanted with this campaign to put a little of that life into the pictures.’

Carré Otis and the Motorcycle ‘Carré [Otis] was still with Mickey Rourke at that time, who I really like. But she didn’t want to be in pictures with other guys and make him jealous. Of course this made things difcult. There was this young kid on the job, who was probably 15 at the time – I said, “What about him? He could be your baby brother.” But she said that would be even worse. So I decided to just do some things alone with her on the street for starters, and I knew she could ride a motorcycle. It was nothing more serious than that.’ The Shot ‘Carré was actually a really good motorcycle rider – otherwise I never would have taken the chance of having her ride this big bike on the streets of San Francisco. We kept the route she was on somewhat short – she wanted to go for a longer ride, but I knew better. Models on motorcycles tend to do a disappearing act. I took the photo from a van driving in front of her, which had the seats taken out and the doors tied open. It was just me and my assistant trying to hold steady on the foor in back.’

Working with Calvin Klein ‘I don’t think Calvin knew what to expect with this shoot – it got pretty crazy. At a certain point, he tried to start laying down rules, but I told him – “Why are we in San Francisco, a city where rules don’t really apply?”’
