Human Life
[N.p.: Self-published, c. 1979]. All elements fine.. Unique artist's book. Quarto. Original photographs and text in sleeves and commercial plastic binding. An early production from artist Barbara Ess, best-known as the editor of Just Another Asshole, and for her large scale photographs made with a pinhole camera. This work, likely made in the late 1970s, consists of a variety of portraits, usually paired with a fictional story. Spanning 48 pages on 24 individual sheets with 20 mounted color photographs, Ess' humorous narrative recalls later projects by Sophie Calle. Decidedly homespun in production, Ess' photographic virtuosity and textual wittiness belie a seemingly do-it-yourself aesthetic.
