Haunting, ephemeral

by jbrooks on Mar 19, 2011

"This is not a 'picture book' for the faint of heart. Many of these images evoked strong emotions from me, and in a couple of instances, goosebumps. I once read a quote from Julian Schnabel where the interviewer asked him why he did art. His answer, "To keep from committing suicide." I believe these Polaroid?s stand as a memorial to that gut-wrenching disclosure. Many are not framed in a 'pictorial' way, and some of them are very obviously obscure. I don't mean blurred; I mean there seems to be a lot more going on than just the surface image. Certainly none of them are 'cute.' I am so happy I bought this book. But I don't think it's for everyone who likes photography. It's more for someone who is interested in seeing an image as a possible gateway to a deeper psychological experience."
