GARAGE STILL LIFES by Corey Olsen

アメリカ人フォトグラファー、コーリー・オルセン(Corey Olsen)の作品集。本書は、どこかの退屈な工具店のウィンドウディスプレイや、5歳児が家のガレージで作り上げたもの、身近にあるもので即席に作ったインスタレーション・アートのような静物作品を収録。作者にとってはある意味の特別な沢山のガラクタによって埋め尽くされた自称「タイムカプセル」というガレージの中で作り出されたこれらのイメージは、本来の実用性といった観点を失いつつ、作者の好奇心や遊び心、自由な発想が存分に発揮されたものとなっている。

"Somewhere among a tedious hardware store display window, a five-year-old's depiction of his parent's garage, and the sort of 'do-what-you-can-with-what-you-have' installation art of the moment are Corey Olsen's "Garage Still Lifes." A self-described "time capsule" filled with "a bunch of crap that was meant to make sense together but doesn't to an outsider," Olsen's garage yields images that are unconcerned with utilitarian order. On the contrary, the pictures beam with crafty solutions, mischievous combinations, and the type of nostalgia that makes you smirk more than jerk a tear. Rusted paint rollers balanced on a green grate, a Pokémon card roped tightly to an ancient can of gasoline, a sheet of graph paper sprinkled with fuses and frustratingly small parts that only your dad would understand - these relationships won't subsist and they weren't meant to. But for the camera, Olsen's curiously constructed, free-thinking, wisecracking exhibition thrives in full color." - David Brandon Geeting
