From the publisher: "This fascinating artist's book by New York-based Dutch artist Anouk Kruithof transforms selections from collector Brad Feuerhelm's vernacular photo collection into five dramatic, mysterious and erotic visual narratives that Kruithof calls 'image-stories.' To accomplish this the artist isolated herself in a bungalow for an extended period of time with digitized versions of the photographs and played with their organization and layering on the computer screen. The resulting alterations and collages saved as screen-shots comprise her experiments with making sense of this voluminous archive. Interspersed between the stories are excerpts from the email correspondence between artist and collector. Kruithof's work has most recently been shown at the Stedelijk, Amersterdam, and is the recipient of the 2014 Charlotte Kohler Prize and ICP Infinity Award, New York. Feuerhelm is a London-based American collector and dealer in vernacular photography. Brief essays on the project by Kruithof and Feuerhelm bookend the image-stories."
