'George Byrne: Post Truth' is NEW from Hatje Cantz!

“Three Panels Palm Springs” (2021) is reproduced from George Byrne: Post Truth, a book to fall in love with. Collecting 68 color photographs of Los Angeles “junkspace,” as if seen through the lens of Ettore Sottsass on holiday in Miami, this body of work was already getting rave reviews many months before the book’s release. (See a few quotes on the book page.) Byrne describes being struck by the seed for the work as he flew in to Los Angeles for the first time. “Even from way up there, I thought it looked strangely beautiful. Later that same day, driving through the streets of LA for the first time, I was transfixed. There was so much light that the streetscapes seemed to become two-dimensional, angular cutouts. Shadows dissected the open space and figures occasionally floated by like ghosts through washed out pastel plains. It felt free, wild and open.”
