Photo Book of the Week – Queen Ann. P.S. Belly cut off

Mariken Wessels – Queen Ann. P.S. Belly cut off
Published by Alauda Publications, 2010
ISBN: 978-90-815314-1-2

I got Mariken Wessel’s new book a couple of weeks ago and have been looking through it quite a bit since then. It is a great follow up to her last book, Elisabeth – I want to eat. It is a similar format in that is consists of found images mostly depicting the same subject, laid out in a way that produces a subtle narrative. Also reminiscent of the loose vellum sheets in her last book, this one comes with a glassine envelope of a few photographs. The photographs are reproductions of found images, but it is still a nice experience to have the comparison of a more physical object paired with the work in book. After seeing both of these books by Mariken, I’m really excited to see what will come next.
