Here • Jessica Todd Harper (SIGNED)
Hard bound, 124 pgs, 50 Illustrations, Essay by Bo Bartlett. Interview by Russ Roberts. Published by Damiani.
This collection of photographs presented in Harper's third monograph makes use of what is right in front of the artist, what is here, a place that many of us came to contemplate especially during the pandemic. Beauty, goodness and truth can reveal themselves in daily life, as in the Dutch paintings of everyday domestic scenes that are somehow lit up with mysterious import. Harper shows how our unexamined or even seemingly dull surroundings can sometimes be illuminating.
