Description

From the publisher: "This new title presents, in its entirety, a new series of photographs by Vik Muniz, completed while he was artist-in-residence at the Frick Art & Historical Center in Pittsburgh. Muniz used his inimitable photographic eye to capture Clayton - the historical home of 19th century American industrialist Henry Clay Frick - through the eyes of a child. Muniz uses a 19th century 8 x 10 inch view camera to record a fictional narrative, using a deliberately low point of view that immerses the viewer in the perspective of a child. The result is a series of ominous and intriguing images that approach history in an imaginative, non-linear fashion."
