Off the Shelf – SUNDAY, PAUL KOOIKER

I have a substantial amount of photo-books. This is a log of the books that I most frequently take off the shelf .

I bought this book at Dashwood Books in NYC and instantly fell in love with it. The pictures are of a bleached white fat woman in high heels who is shown in various poses on a dais in a suburban garden where the leaves are all blood red. The pictures communicate a very strong visual language closer to poetry.

Some of the images are manipulated to further objectify the woman body. I couldn’t tell you what the book is about – its power is in its unique vision.

The book is soft back in an edition of a 1000. The printing is very good with an almost metallic quality with deep blacks and good colour rendition.

Here’s a link for more information on the book.

Let me know what you think...
