In Almost Every Picture 9.
Editd by Erik Kessels.
KesselsKramer, 2010. 112 pp., Color and black & white illustrations throughout, 6x8".
Latest addition in the long running series of found photography, in which editor Erik Kessels explores a collection of amateur and overlooked imagery. #9 features the story of one family's attempts to photograph their black dog over several decades. Posed usually with his owners in domestic settings, for years the lack of light and camera limitations make the dog appear as a vague blob. Only at the book's uplifting conclusion does the family's equipment and technique match their ambition, as their pet is finally captured in all his glory, illustrating a tale of optimism and perseverance.
