AUGUST EDITIONS

Love & Hate & Other Mysteries

Found Altered Snapshots from the Collection of Thierry Struvay

Introduction by Glenn O'Brien

Spread from 'Love & Hate & Other Mysteries.'A photograph is forever. Or is it? Culled from the vast vernacular photographic collection of Thierry Struvay, Love & Hate & Other Mysteries presents a funny, often poignant and truthful glimpse into the human condition. The unassuming and elegantly designed hardcover publication explodes once opened with 100 found black-and-white and color photographs that have been manually altered by scissors or pen or physically attacked in a fit of rage. Some deletions, such as a missing face in the shape of a heart or oval, were clearly intended for a locket. Others, however, contain angrily scratched-out heads and bodies or are simply torn in half. A third group feature manipulations more mysterious in nature: strange cut-outs that hint at a mix of emotions and motives. Together with a poetic introductory text by Glenn O'Brien, the photographs suggest a wide range of human drama, from affection to anger and much in between.

Love & Hate & Other Mysteries

Love & Hate & Other Mysteries

The title of this Valentine's Day Staff Pick says it all. A beautifully produced clothbound hardcover with a ripped-apart, tipped-on cover image, this collection of vintage vernacular photographs from new publisher August Editions features only pictures in which one of the subjects has been lovingly, mysteriously, or violently excised. Whether repurposed for a romantic keepsake like a lover's locket, or indicating complete excommunicating, the missing pieces can only be guessed at. The remaining images leave much to the imagination. continue to blog
