Photography, Books, and the Post-medium Condition

"Photography and books are both at inflection points. For photography, the proliferation of digital images created by camera-phones has transformed the distribution and meaning of photographic images. For books, electronic devices have changed how one acquires and reads books. This project takes a look at both mediums, interrogating their properties and their innate characteristics.

The images question photographic truth-telling and the properties of photography such as what is gained or lost with the conversion of color images to black and white. In addition, the process of darkroom photography forms part of the project; after all to change image-colour, why not just 'photoshop' it?

Likewise, with the electronic transmission of books, how one reads is also at an inflexion point. Nostalgically, the project reminds readers of the marks on the page left by fingernails or water and of a time when book designers colored the top, bottom and fore-edge of some paperback books. By creating life-size stacks of books, the images become characters - taking on the traces and characteristics of their readers - and at the same time the impossibly tall stacks of books make uncertain the veracity of photographic images."
