R. Crumb snapshot source material
Unearthing a series of typological photos made by the legendary cartoonist to draw from as source material for the bleak background reality of modern life.

“I want to be vexed, pushed, startled by a book. It shouldn’t be set up as too smooth a ride.”

“What do you see in here that you can’t find in news pictures?”
Conversations on photography with
"photography often resists it, and functions best when narrative is imagined"
"I never went to a photography school, which was my saving grace ... I didn't have to unlearn all the rules that schools teach you"
What makes a good photobook?
"overcoming the blindness that afflicts the short-term traveler"
