One of the most desirable and collectable books of modern photography, with prices ranging up into the thousands of dollars.

This copy is very competitively priced because it appears to have a name crossed out on the cover. It could be part of the original print, but we cannot find an image online which has that mark. (View top left corner of attached image of this item.)

Containing 144 spectacular color and duotone full-page gravures (four folding), the book is an intimate photo-essay that features images of sculpted fashionable young people and the sensual Rio de Janeiro scene. Bruce Weber has produced a formidable list of wonderful photobooks throughout the years but "O Rio de Janeiro" still remains his most sought after book. In "The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century" Vince Aletti states, "O Rio is most successful as a carefully planned act of seduction Weber has turned his trademark fiction of youthful exuberance and sexy camaraderie into a fast-paced montage intercut with landscapes, still lifes, news photos and family snapshots."

Elizabeth's Bookshops have been one of Australia's premier independent book dealers since 1973. Elizabeth's family-owned business operates four branches in Perth CBD, Fremantle (WA), and Newtown (NSW). All orders are dispatched within 24 hours from our Fremantle Warehouse.
