Fotobuch

Posted in Publications by JS on January 2, 2018

What do a Marilyn Monroe poster, a fast food menu, a postcard rack, a hairdresser’s model collection, a Che Guevara portrait, and a lost cat poster have in common? Nothing, except that they are photographs displayed in public space that all ended up in my archive of photographs gathered from around the world over fifteen years. Removed from their original context and presented without any comment, these photographs of photographs turn out to be a miscellaneous reflection of popular obsessions, fantasies, and desires that become apparent in the everyday use of photography. The book is a twin of my Bilderbuch, maybe it’s my only real Fotobuch. It is now available in my shop.
