Description of this Book

With a highly constructed, at times fetishistic approach to subjects, objects and materials, Los Angeles-based photographer Torbj rn R dland (born 1970) makes photographs that are formally acute, conceptually playful and psychologically evocative. This publication offers a fresh perspective on his work. Walead Beshty's text, Skin Flicks, focuses on R dland's approach to surfaces; Julie Boukobza considers a number of works in the exhibition by building fictive narratives around them; and Diane Nguyen stages a surreal and winding narrative performance through R dland's image repertoire. Bob Nickas' essay, Fifteen Years Later, draws upon the experience of looking at R dland's photographs and provides a visual map of their complex system of symbols, signs and gestures. The publication also includes newly commissioned works by esteemed poets Stuart Krimko and Alice Notley.
