Gabriel Orozco: Photographs
by Mia Fineman
Publisher's Description
Gabriel Orozco is renowned for creating work that highlights the elegant and lyrical beauty found in the everyday. His art has taken the form of sculpture, installations, drawing, photography, and video. Orozco photographs things as he finds them, 'self-arranged' on the streets, or in found situations in which he has gently intervened. Previous publications of his work have highlighted the interconnectedness between the various aspects of his work, or have focused solely on his sculptures or videos. This book is the first ever to focus solely on his photographs, with an accompanying introductory text and biographical material on the artist. It clarifies the distinction between the photographs that Orozco considers as independent artworks and the often equally beautiful photographs which he regards as documentation of sculptures or performances pieces, wherein the latter are the actual artwork.
