Adam Fuss, My Ghost, 1999 Signed handmade photo book
Hard bound book with silkscreened text by Arseny Tarkovsky and color photographs after daguerreotypes by Fuss, slipcase. 14 x 11 x 1 in. (35.56 x 27.94 x 2.54 cm). This is edition #193 of 300. This is a handmade book and there are bubbles in the gluing of the hardcover. You can see this in the pictures attached. Photographer Adam Fuss places living and non-living objects, including balloons, flowers, water, babies, animal entrails, and skulls, directly onto Cibachrome paper and exposes them to light, making photograms that explore imperfection, intimacy, nostalgia, and the passage of time.
In the 2010 series Home and the World, Fusss gelatin silver print photograms and large-scale daguerreotypes record groupings of live snakes on stained mattresses and a close-up of a vagina. Snakes and Ladders (a Jain morality-teaching tool developed in India during the 16th century), ancient mythology, and the work of social symbolism scholar Carl Schuster all inform Fusss poetic imagery.
