New Books

Posted in Publications by JS on July 10, 2009

As previously mentioned additional titles in the Other People’s Photographs series will continually become available through this website. The newest titles for purchase are Happy Birthday, Mickey, Nothing Wrong, Real Estate and Statues.

This series of books centres on the themes presented by everyday, amateur photographers. Images found on photo sharing sites such as Flickr have been collected and ordered in a way to form a continually expanding encyclopedic library of digital photography. Each book is comprised of images that focus on a specific photographic event or idea, the grouping of photographs revealing a language of modern vernacular photography.
Hardcover, 18×18 cm, 36 pages, 32 photographs, 36 € each

Furthermore, there’s a new book that isn’t part of any series but something of its own: In Dialogue is the result of an experimental process of non-verbal communication. Between November 2008 and January 2009, Marcelo Brodsky and me had a dialogue without any words, without any emphasis on a particular subject, without any pre-conceived ideas — a dialogue about nothing. The two of us took turns exchanging photographs by email, each one a direct response to the previous one, creating a continuous and meandering photographic ping-pong through the visual universe. Despite the lack of obvious subject matter the resulting sequence of photographs creates meaning. For the viewers it is an invitation to retrace the decisions made by two brains working in visual rather than verbal mode. The print-on-demand book is now available either through this website or directly at the Blurb bookstore.
Hardcover, 18 x 18 cm, 40 pages, 36 photographs, 20 €
