Emotion in Action
by Lou Reed
Publisher's Description
"Like everything else I do, my photos are about emotion. I'm interested in causing and recording emotion through action and interactive sequence, the sequence meant to tell a story of sorts, a dream. I am a lyricist and my feeling for rhythm and song dictates that these photos not be titled or in any other way impinged by the written word. The visuals speak for themselves in their relationships and theme and I have no interest in the where and when of it all. These dreams exist through the viewfinder of the camera and express a reality seen only through a lens but experienced by us all in every moment of puzzlement in waking life."—Lou Reed. One of the great icons of modern pop-culture, Lou Reed is an inductee in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in and a founding member of the legendary band Velvet Underground. His experimentation with photography began in the 90s and was first exhibited in the 1997 group show Extended Play: Between Rock and an Art Space at the Boston University's Photographic Resource Center. Emotion in Action is handsomely designed-a small blue book rests in the cover of a larger volume.
