ASSEMBLY by Jack Bool

ロサンゼルスを拠点として活動するフォトグラファー、ジャック・ブール(Jack Bool)の作品集。作者にとって初めての作品集となる一冊。過去数年間撮影してきた作品をまとめている。グラフィックデザイナーの加瀬透が装丁を手がける。

Jack Bool is a photographer based in Los Angeles. Assembly is his first photo book. The pictures in this book were made throughout the past few years: the couple living in the surfing community of New Smyrna, and the boys of Waimea Bay have golden tans and their scars like footprints in the sand; his cousin graduated from a fire academy in Phoenix, Arizona - he lit some buildings on fire and split a car in half while a crowd cheered. "These gatherings felt performative, like some grand American theatre," Bool says, "I often found myself complicit within this fantasy, and my camera for better or worse tucked away. "

In Bool's photography, storytelling is always at the core of his work. This book is about touching, and an eagerness to meet with people and places. And then the camera becomes an excuse.
