Book of the Week: A Pick by Clare Strand
Punks by Olivier Richon and Karen Knorr


"The book I have chosen is Punks by Olivier Richon and Karen Knorr. I have chosen this book as its subject seems so unlikely from these two authors. I have also chosen it because of the beautiful production by GOST Books and, like every great book, it smells good too.

Olivier and Karen are both known for their intense theoretical and allegorical work, and to think of them hanging out on the punk scene seemed somewhat incongruous to my preconceptions. When this book came out it made me jump and made me think about people in a different way — it also reminded me how great it is to be young." —Clare Strand

Paul Kwiatkowski: And Every Day Was Overcast

"There's a reason most novels don't contain photographs, and that's because novels are fictional while photographs represent the real world. OK, I admit it's not quite as simple as that. But in literature that basic equation still explains a lot. Why are there no photographs of Hester Prynne, Moby Dick or Peter Pan? Because they are invented characters. They can't sit in front of a camera. In fact if a photograph of any of those creatures had accompanied the original novels they appeared in, their interpretation and legacy would be completely altered. That's the quandary immediately confronting readers of Paul Kwiatkowski's illustrated book And Every Day Was Overcast. The book is clearly labeled as a novel. Yet the majority of its contents are photographs. These photos are given a further patina of reality by following a casual snapshot aesthetic." — from Blake Andrews' review of And Every Day Was Overcast by Paul Kwiatkowski

Sonja Braas: So Far

"So Far is Sonja Braas' second book, following 2004's Forces. It is a survey of selected images from four different series: The Passage, The Quiet of Dissolution, Forces, and You Are Here. Braas uses photography to make her art, but not in the way that currently overflows digital services like Flickr and Instagram. Instead, most of the photographs are made from carefully constructed models of landscapes that recall 19th century Romantic paintings. I see more in common with Caspar David Friedrich and Joseph Mallord William Turner than I do William Eggleston or even other constructed-reality photographers like Jeff Wall and Gregory Crewdson." — from David Ondrik's review of So Far by Sonja Braas
