08 Nov Laws of the Haystack
Posted at 14:36h in Review, Books, Architecture, Photography
“Once I made a snap shot of an ordinary haystack that reminded me of many other structures I had never seen. Long after the haystack was gone, I kept feeling the urge to discover what the image contained but did not reveal.” By deconstructing and reassembling photographs of haystacks, Emile Gostelie discovers and creates new structures. The haystacks in this beautiful book vary from seemingly real to utopian. They seperate with their original meaning and take on new forms. They evoke the joy of order and the discomfort of a construction that threatens to collapse at any moment.
