About the Book
Truth and Beauty is a collection of vernacular images meant to suggest an emotional and mental roller coaster; there is no overriding polemic though my predilections and prejudices of course are very evident. Because the images are collected at flea markets and on line in a way that engenders a certain randomness, in my editing I try to recreate that randomness. I could of course try to tame the anarchy, but I like the unpredictability of what you find as you flip from page to page both for its own sake, for the surprise, and because the book is meant to mirror the way life come at you: as a surprise, unpredictably. I operate not as an artist but as a curator. And if what I am curating is an anarchic collection of images then it seems I can only go so far to impose order before I betray the nature of the beast.
