Larry Sultan, Pictures from Home
First published in 1992 to wide critical acclaim, Pictures From Home is Larry Sultan’s paean to his parents – a multi-layered memoir of a Californian couple living the quintessential Reagan-era American dream.
Sultan combines his photographs with film stills from home movies, fragments of conversation, the photographer’s own writings and other memorabilia to build a narrative collage in which the boundary between the documentary and the staged becomes increasingly ambiguous. MACK’s new edition of this book affords a fresh perspective on Sultan’s seminal body of work, while holding sacred the relationship between text and image that the photographer chose.
