TOUT VA BIEN: JH ENGSTROM Aperture Foundation, Inc., New York, 2015. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 152 pp. with 102 ills. (57 col.). 29 x 24 cm. LC 2015-907978 ISBN 9781597113489 In English.
Entirely pictorial. Publisher's description: Swedish artist JH Engstrom (born 1969) is an inveterate bookmaker. Most recently, his published works have explored ideas of place and home, including Sketch of Paris (Aperture, 2013), La Residence (2010), From Back Home (2009) and CDG/JHE (2008). After more than a decade of such thematic projects, Tout Va Bien returns to the looser, more associative approach of Engstrom's critically acclaimed volume Trying to Dance (2003). The source for these photographs is nevertheless strongly autobiographical, as well as vividly metaphorical; a reemphasis of the artist's belief in photography's potential as visual poetry. The sequencing is highly charged with contrasts: black-and-white images mix with color; the gentle beauty of coastal rocks clashes with a flash-lit image of the bright, blood-red placentas from the birth of his twins. The book leaves it to the viewer to map his or her own network of meaning from image to image, page to page.
