In stock

Pickup currently unavailable at Camera West Rancho Mirage

Five Years and Sixty Seconds encapsulates the entirety of Mark de Paola’s fine artwork from 2015-2019 including 402 pages of his fine art series 60 Seconds, Art of Backstage, Recent Work, Ema, You, and brand new work titled Pearling and Provini.
Published by Brilliant Press, the book serves as a precious artifact in a highly limited edition of only 200 copies with printed cloth covers and gold title inlay, bound in brown leather. Very few copies still remain.

Five Years and Sixty Seconds opens with Mark's text titled Love Song, an ode to shifting his historically commercial fashion career to a very personal, heartfelt, fine art lens.

Brief glimpses of prose transport the viewer into Mark's completely unedited and uncropped view exploring the in and out-of-focus areas of the image as it relates to the neurobiology of human vision.

Recent Work is de Paola’s most current fine art series that debuted at PhotoFairs SF alongside Fred Lyon, Ralph Gibson, and Danny Wilcox Frazier with the Leica Gallery San Francisco in the Winter of 2018. Created over several years, the series includes portrait, nude, landscape, and inanimate objects, and narrates de Paola’s memories, feelings, and impressions of people, places, and objects he has known.

Previously exhibited at the Leica Gallery Porto, Leica Gallery Milan, and Leica Gallery San Francisco. Monographs Recent Work I and Recent Work II are included in the permanent collection libraries at MoMA NY and The Getty, Los Angeles.

On January 7th, 2016, 60 Seconds opened at the Leica Gallery in San Francisco to great acclaim.

The 60 Seconds series plays as the anchor in the book being the centerfold story so that when the book lies open on a table it naturally opens to Mark's beginnings in the fine art realm and the root of his inspiration.

Art of Backstage is de Paola’s journalistic document of the fashion week backstage environment in New York City, London, and Milan. The series has previously been exhibited at the Leica Gallery Soho, Caelum Gallery, Leica Gallery GINZA SIX, and Leica Gallery Boston.

Three Vignettes conclude the monograph in personal bodies of work with de Paola's closest collaborators in Ema, You, and Provini.

Five Years and Seconds proves to be a highly precious photography collector's monograph that will only wear and patina more beautifully over time as you live with de Paola's highly lyrical, emotional, and poetic body of work.
