LIKE WOW. DEANA LAWSON SIGNED BY DEANA LAWSON. AN INTERVIEW WITH ARTHUR JAFA. AN ESSAY BY ZADIE SMITH. AND THE MOST AMAZE PHOTOGRAPHS WE HAVE SEEN FOR A LONG, LONG TIME. A TRUE 2018 SUPERBOOK AND ALREADY SO SCARCE. DID WE SAY IT WAS SIGNED? IT IS. SIGNED.
Burgundy. The page edges are tipped in claret too. It is a very, very handsome book.
Blackness. Everyone in the book is black. Lawson travels the world to create these pictures. Mickey & Friends was shot in Jamaica.
Sons of Cush. 2016. There is something of Tina Barney in these carefully composed pictures. They are staged portraits. Documentary portraits perhaps. In the interview with Arthur Jafa, Lawson talks about trying to set up this photograph with various men and babies (and a yellow dress) in various locations. They all failed. Then she met someone who knew someone who had a two month old daughter. And this is the photograph. Real.
And still life. Our iPhone re-photograph doesn't do the printing of these colours justice.It is a wet towel. But a sumptuous one.
Khadafi, 2013. An appropriated image. Included we would think for the contrast it provides. Lawson's prepared subjects are pictured without the trappings of received culture. In her pictures, there is less bling. Just the thing.
We came to this book via Arthur Jafa. It is epic. We have been looking for a signed copy for a while. So we could write about it. Now that mission is accomplished. And this very rarely there book is yours. One copy on the button below.
RETURN OF THE RAF SIMONS 1996-2006 ARCHIVE BOOK. THIRTY MINT COPIES FOUND IN A WAREHOUSE IN JAPAN. AT THE ORIGINAL PRICE TOO. A SECOND CHANCE TO OWN THE FAST SELLING, MOST SOLD OUT BOOK OF THE LAST FEW YEARS. ENJOY.
