LIMA GREENE, ALISON DE, WITH ANNE WILKES TUCKER, CHRISSIE ILES AND MARISA C. SANCHEZ - Amy Blakemore - Photographs 1988-2008

Title: Amy Blakemore - Photographs 1988-2008
Description: Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX, USA, 2009 Square octavo paperback; illustrated wrappers; 112pp., many monochrome and full-colour photographic illustrations. Some scuffs to the wrappers, else near fine. Amy Blakemore is renowned for her deceptively simple photographs of friends, family, and local landscapes. Her images evoke fleeting aspects of personality and memory Blakemore has worked for the past twenty years with low-tech, medium-format Diana cameras known for flaws that produce a flattened perspective, color shifts, vignetting, and blurriness. Blakemore manipulates these flaws to capture the way memory simultaneously records and distorts visual information, creating photographs that are familiar and mysterious; both documents of the present and suggestions of times past. The book brings together images that seem to record casual, spontaneous moments but also hint at a larger narrative.
