‘A Nice Pair’ – one-off artist’s book

April 4, 2015

nice pair coverI’ve just compiled a one-off artist’s book – but there’s no point in producing stuff if it can’t be seen, so it’s available as a pdf. But to make you have to work a bit to see it, you can’t download the pdf here – you will have to email me and I’ll email you the pdf (about 8mb). The original book is a 96 page small landscape shaped Moleskine. Inside are a collection of ‘found’ individual photos from Tumblr and similar sites that are paired with one another so meanings that didn’t exist are made between them. Sometimes the pairings are humorous, sometimes they make uncomfortable associations.

Whenever a number of pictures are presented together, the artist, curator and viewer all make associations between them and if stories don’t exist we make them up. So you are cordially invited to make it up as you go along.
