Steidl, July 2011. Hardcover. Used - Very Good. Item #140293
I have always had the dream to make books that would mirror a life formed by the wind pushing us, by the fires I always ignite much to the police's chagrin: books that, like my photographs, my drawings, my writing - like an attitude - are not produced but crafted. Together with Martin d'Orgeval as the conductor, and Gerhard Steidl as the wizard-publisher, I have ventured to gather these energies and to follow my intuition, to adjoin one by one my spelling mistakes, my un-photogenic works, my pen's pirouettes, their reverberating souls - to take you with me through mountains of dreams over oceans of laughter and into my life shared with millions whose loving eyes rest on me. Autocar, Omnibus is a series of tailored books of indescribable forms linking the artist, who is driving the bus, with his readers/passengers who are often models, victims, fatally delivered to the camera's shutter and the drawn line; linking their fantasies, their needs for evasion, and offering shelter within these whimsical books.
