Publisher's Description
Roni Horn: This is Me, This is You

This is Me, This is You is Roni Horn's handbook of identity. It is also a book with no end. Peruse the 48 images taken with a point-and-shoot camera and, as you arrive at the last image, flip the book over and begin again. Each image reappears, in a version taken just seconds later. A single and singular portrait of one young girl taken over a two-year period, This is Me, This is You evokes a multitude-of identities, images, and icons-of everything that can be subtly revealed in the process of visiting and revisiting a single person through a camera, through time. Ultimately, it is the multitude that exists in all of us.

Roni Horn was born in 1955 in New York. Since earning her MFA from Yale University in 1978, she has shown her sculptures, installations, and photographs extensively throughout the world. Along with her most recent book Dictionary of Water, a universal lexicon shot exclusively on the Thames, Horn has also thoroughly documented various aspects of the Icelandic landscape.
