Photographs by Lucas Blalock.
238 pp., illustrated throughout, 8x10".
Lucas Blalock plays with the conventions of photography by exploring its limits and inherent contradictions. He examines not only the photograph's subject but also the internal information of its making. Transposing Bertholt Brecht's theory of alienation into photography by making the mechanics of the tools of production an evident part of the picture, Blalock then forces the viewer to question the conflicting realities set before them and, in turn, the contemporary condition of photography itself.
