Mike Slack - Walking in Place 1


Publisher's description:

Walking in Place 1: New Orleans is the first in a series of standalone books by Los Angeles-based photographer Mike Slack, each taking in a different city, town or geographical locale. In this volume, Slack records various points of reference on a five day meander through The Big Easy, creating an inner travelogue both meditative and playful. Driven by an almost unconscious process of seeing, recording and cumulation, his gaze settles on architectural details, local flora, street ephemera, and the curious neighborhood cats that cross his path. Led by his keen eye for street-side formalism, and a canny sensitivity to the poetics of light and tonality — and their unlikely urban iterations and combinations — Slack has crafted another telling contribution to what has emerged as a genuinely unique photographic language. The book itself assumes the form of an elegant, pocket-sized paperback — a non-linear, non-verbal journal for the perpetual wanderer.
