Change, the first volume of The Gould Collection, interweaves Stephen Dixon’s short story Change with Mikiko Hara’s untitled photographs from 1996 to 2009.
Isolation and social disconnect define both Dixon’s story and Hara’s photographs. Whether images of a bored mother and child on a Tokyo subway or dialogue that reveals missed social cues between neighbors, the people who inhabit the pages of Change try and often fail to genuinely interact with one another. Visually united through an inventive design that presents Dixon’s story on iridescent sheets interspersed between Hara’s color images, Change probes alienation and its role in contemporary life.
Change is the first books from The Gould Collection, a series of books that brings together contemporary photographers with short story writers. The series is published in memory of Christophe Crison, a photobook collector from Paris who died tragically in July 2015 at the age of 45. The Gould Collection is co-edited by Laurence Vecten (Paris), Russet Lederman (New York City) and Yoko Sawada (Tokyo).
Edition of 500 copies.
