Mark Power’s Favorite Book from 2019

Sleep Creek by Dylan Hausthor and Paul Guilmoth.   Published by Void.

A beautiful little book from the excellent Athens-based Void, this was my most exciting find at Paris Photo. Devoid of text, the book appears to blend fact, fiction, and myth, with pictures consistently strange and often difficult to read. We get several bats, lots of fire, a corpse, naked people in forests, an old man with a nosebleed, and a fish in a tree (to name but a few). A little research reveals the work was made on a small island off the coast of Maine, where the pair “lived together in a cold house.” It’s a brave publication, but one which (I’m sure) will continue to reveal itself over time.
