” . . . What you expect to be a photo isn’t, and what you expect to be an object is a photographic image.” Extending this idea more broadly, Muniz adds, “In a time when everything’s reproducible, the difference between the artwork and its image is all but nonexistent.”

“Paper Movies” contemporary photobooks exhibition | Joseloff Gallery of the Hartford Art School

if departing

It was daunting to walk into an oceanic gallery space streaming with over a hundred photography art books facing up, until I pulled up a stool and opened Black Threads from Meng Chiao (TIS Books, Brooklyn, NY, 2015), a collaboration by the photographer, Justine Kurland, and the poet, John Yau, then one other, Cuny Janssen: Yoshino  (snoeck, Cologne, GR), right up to being told the gallery was about to close for the evening. I am bound to return at least once before the exhibition closes on February 17, 2016. – Donna Fleischer

Black Threads from Meng Chiao



Cuny Janssen: Yoshino

The widest pages, or leaves*, of the staggered, multi-wide book, Yoshino, are those of full-color photographs bleeding off all four sides. These approximate 18 inches of an arm’s length from gutter to foredge, and so may be turned only slowly. Other narrower ones are almost see-through, frosted overlays of various widths with one-sided, dense, generously leaded, black texts of prose and haibun by Bashō (Travel Record of Weatherbeaten Skeleton), Saigyō, and others:

This simple abode

where I don’t even use

all of the clear, clean water

trickling down

between the rocks.

– Saigyō

All in all inspired this poem:

trees’ leaves flap

i turn slowly as if

departing, when

only just arrived

with so sudden a wind.

– Donna Fleischer

It’s all great but the video from which this screen shot derived is very beautiful with music, film, and poetry. – DF
