This new artist’s book is comprised of photographs Christopher Wool (born 1955) made between 2008 and 2017 in the surroundings of Marfa in West Texas, where Wool spends part of his time.

These are pictures of found situations, rendered serendipitous by the power of the artist’s photographic vision: pictures of backyard debris and improvised storage solutions, stray animals and strange constructions that once must have made sense but now appear undecipherable. Things set adrift and excerpts from the landscape that appear almost like sculpture for the split second of the open lens.
