Published 2002 
From Library Journal 
Published in conjunction with a solo exhibition of the artist's work held at the Ricco/Maresca Gallery in New York City, this first book by the 2001 recipient of the prestigious International Center of Photography's Infinity Award for Young Photographer includes a three-page introductory essay by the artist (with cultural critic Gadi Taub) and 91 full-color family portraits, self-portraits, and abstractions. The dated and captioned images cover a nine-year period in Carucci's life, from 1993 until 2001. While the works in this monograph focus on the personal life of the 31-year-old photographer, who was born and educated in Israel, they also feature broader themes, such as love, marriage, intimacy, and privacy. The photographs are disconcerting in their attempt to examine and elevate everyday, and often overtly sexual, material to a fine art. This first book belongs in specialized library collections covering contemporary photography, but given the predominantly nonscholarly and visual nature of this monograph, academic librarians with limited budgets may need to pass.

Book Description 
Closer: Photographs by Elinor Carucci is the first monograph by this recipient of the prestigious International Center for Photography's 2001 Infinity Award for Best Young Photographer. Carucci is renowned for sensuous portraits of her family and herself, and Closer reveals the breadth of her work, from the erotic to the ethereal-exposing an emotionally honest world flooded with color. Fragments of her life are revealed through 90 full-color family portraits, self-portraits, and artful abstractions, making Closer a daring portrayal of this up-and-coming artist's intimate emotional geography.
