From the publisher: "Hundreds of Sparrows is a two-volume set of books by contemporary artist and filmmaker Katy Grannan. Volume 1 (NZL Set 3), and Volume 2 (NZL Set 4, forthcoming) both function as stand-alone books; together, they tell a deeper story, playing off of each other and delving deeper into the lives and surroundings of their subjects.
The photographs in Hundreds of Sparrows were made in the Central Valley, in particular, the sprawling cities of Modesto, Fresno, and Bakersfield that sit within this vast agricultural region in the geographical center of California. This location also served as the setting for Grannan’s debut feature film, "The Nine", which premiered to wide critical acclaim in 2016. Throughout the works, the artist explores the significance and complexity of the seemingly ordinary, the mundane and the overlooked—anonymous strangers, familiar gestures and interactions—the soundscape and theatre of nowhere.
This is the other side of the American Dream.
Katy Grannan’s work has been featured in exhibitions worldwide and is included in many permanent collections, including those of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; The National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and The LA County Museum of Art.
Hundreds of Sparrows: Volume 1 is printed in a limited edition of 350 numbered, signed and slipcased copies."
