Aaron Stern: I Woke Up in My Clothes

Published by Damiani
Text by David Wagoner, Rich Appel.

Featured image is reproduced from <I>Aaron Stern: I Woke Up in My Clothes</I>.I Woke Up in My Clothes is a visual narrative from American photographer Aaron Stern (born 1978), whose images have appeared in such publications as Dazed & Confused, The New York Times T Magazine and L’Officiel Hommes. Capturing lost moments of intimacy and shattered landscapes ranging from Rockaway Beach after Hurricane Sandy to the empty lots on the outskirts of downtown Los Angeles, these photographs are the artist’s attempt to capture a world view that life consists of periods of positive connections that punctuate the isolation of modern existence and the inevitable decay that faces all human endeavor. Photographed on 35mm and medium-format film from 2007–2013, I Woke Up in My Clothes includes an introduction by Los Angeles writer Rich Appel and a poem from award-winning American poet David Wagoner--an existential hymn to impermanence and companionship.

Aaron Stern: I Woke Up in My Clothes

Aaron Stern: I Woke Up in My ClothesIn Aaron Stern's new monograph, I Woke Up in My Clothes, essayist Rich Appel writes, "I know firsthand how much more Aaron sees than ordinary folks. One of my favorite images of his is that of a mustard-colored banquette. There's nothing fancy about the picture. The booth looks worn and faded and a little lonely. It's empty except for a place setting with no plates, and no food either. And yet that's not the whole story. The booth is also solid and well-made and resilient; there aren't any tears in the seat and back cushions. And the tufts, on second glance, create a series of diamonds, some of which literally shimmer in the light. It looks inviting and reassuring in its unpretentiousness. The color scheme and its no-nonsense style remind me of a favorite photograph by Stephen Shore of a Howard Johnson's hotel room in 1973. I told Aaron how much I liked his photograph and asked him where it was taken. He looked at me as if I were joking. Turns out it's a booth in a Mexican restaurant about two miles from my house in Los Angeles; I've been there many times. More embarrassing still, he told me that I was in his group the night he stepped away from our meal and took the picture. For all I know, I've sat in that booth, and it all looked new; I had never seen it the way Aaron did. And now that picture hangs on my wall, a reminder that I've got to learn from Aaron and open my eyes a little wider to the world around me." continue to blog
