POSTCARDS HOME: HENRY JACOBSON. Ed. by Taj Forer and Michael Itkoff. Daylight Books, Hillsborough, 2013. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 96 pp. with 76 ills. (71 col.). 19 x 29 cm. ISBN 9780988983106 In English.
Publisher's description: This monograph is the result of three years that photographer Henry Jacobson spent living on the road, shooting film around the world. This nomadic phase allowed for only limited access to those Jacobson held dear, and the varied array of subject matter found in Postcards Home is consequently a record of a period of personal upheaval; of the endings and beginnings of very important relationships; of illnesses and deaths and births. All of the works in this book were taken with an iPhone, and most were immediately sent to someone he cared about, or were shared within his broader social network. Such synergy of photography and communication was facilitated by mobile technology, a development which is transforming society's understanding of the medium of photography from a frozen moment to a visual interaction between individuals, making this collection important both from a personal and historical perspective.
