Artikelnummer: 5119 Categorieën: ,


32 x 29 cm. With tinted photographs. Cloth with dustwrapper. – Printed in 2000 copies. – In 1998 photographer Deborah Luster and poet C.D. Wright set out to produce a record of Louisiana’s prison population through image and text. One Big Self is a document to ward off forgetting, an opportunity for those inmates to present themselves as they would be seen, bringing what they own or borrow or use: work tools, objects of their making, messages of their choosing, their bodies, themselves. The photographer has been commissioned, in a sense, by the inmates to make portraits for their loved ones – trying to ensure a balance between photograph and subject, to connect the viewer, whether mother, child, friend, or stranger, to the prisoner. The view is inherently personal. – Pages a bit yellowed in outer margins, else fine
