1 000

i was lucky enought to find a cheap (shop-soiled) copy of philip lorca dicorcia’s book ‘thousand’ today, an incredibly thick compilation book, printed on ultra-thin parchment paper containing one thousand polaroids, made throughout his career…

Something interesting happens when these intimately scaled pictures are viewed in succession: as our eyes follow the centerline of diCorcia?s horizontal span of images, we are hypnotized by the continuity and disruption of the sequence, in the same way that a photo flipbook aspires to the speed of the film reel.

two interesting reviews can be found here and here
