BLACK FOREST: FOUR VISIBLE POEMS. Ed. by Russell Joslin. Candela Books, Richmond, 2014. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 128 pp. with 79 ills. (17 col.). 25 x 19 cm. LC 2014-946998 ISBN 9780984573936 In English.
Publisher's description: Black Forest is an arcane collection featuring the works of over 50 contemporary photographers, including Roger Ballen, Arthur Tress, Debbie Fleming Caffery, Elijah Gowin, Louviere and Vanessa, Arno Rafael Minkkinen, Irina Ionesco, Julie Blackmon, Gilles Berquet and many other internationally known photographers. In this volume, editor Russell Joslin -- long-time publisher of Shots magazine -- follows in the steps of Andre Breton (from whom he borrows his title), exploring what he calls "subterranean beauty." Darkly atmospheric sequences of surrealistic photographs become a metaphor for the unconscious and the mysterious, dark corners of the psyche. Suggesting loose, intuitive relationships between the works of contemporary artists, Joslin creates four visual narratives associated in tone, emotion and formal structure, but requires that his readers and viewers render for themselves the hidden, connective layers of meaning.
