"Book 56", Framed Lith Processed Silver Gelatin Print

2011

$500

About

Photographer Mark Douglas’ current body of work explores form using books as subject matter. Photography does several things by default. The first of which, is the presentation of evidence or the creation of documents. Through this documentary nature, photography carries a weight of truth for the viewer, much as the written word. The books are presented on edge, recorded in a contorted state, in an ambiguous space. Thus the ‘truth’, the evidence that Douglas creates, is left open to interpretation by the viewer. These abstracted tomes are not intended to be narrative; rather they are, “about photography presenting an absolute, evidentiary truth, and simultaneously no truth at all. They are about levels of interpretation and understanding and about information revealed, and information concealed.” Mark is a Professor of graphic design and photography at Fontbonne University.
