“Supermarket” by artist John Divola comprises a group of photographs of middle-aged women shopping for groceries in the early 1970s. The black-and-white photographs were made in the San Fernando Valley where Divola grew up. Made at the outset of Divola’s career, these images are at once melancholy - an element that runs through most of his subsequent work - and by their nature, humorously touching. They also provide a glimpse into Divola’s upcoming monograph, “San Fernando Valley”, which will be published by Nazraeli Press in 2014 as part of our forthcoming NZ Library series. "Supermarket" is limited to 500 numbered copies, and includes an original signed photograph by John Divola.
NAZRAELI PRESS' popular One Picture Book series was conceived in 1998 as a way to make original artwork affordable. The series consists of uniformly designed, modestly-sized hardcover books, comprising 16 pages that serve as a “canvas” for the artist to display one cohesive body of work. Each title is limited to 500 numbered copies and includes an original tipped-in photograph, signed on the verso by the artist. The One Picture Book series ended in 2016 with its 100th title and has now moved to a new upgraded One Picture Book Two series.
