Ari Marcopoulos' "Directory" Book from Rizzoli

This April, Rizzoli and the Swiss publisher Nieves are set to release Ari Marcopoulos: Directory, a monumental limited edition phone-book-sized volume of photographs featuring 1200 of Marcopoulos’ most recent images. Each copy includes a print signed by Ari Marcopoulos.

Art critic Neville Wakefield provided the companion commentary.

Rizzoli writes, "Marcopoulos has amassed a highly respected body of work documenting subcultures such as skateboarders and graffiti artists, as well as landscapes and images of his own family and friends. His unique style has made him one of the most influential and important contemporary photographers."

Something to look forward to in the world of Ari Marcopoulos: he will have an exhibition at Ratio 3 Gallery in San Francisco this September, 2011.
