Project Statement

by J. Drucker

A parody of the photo-roman, this book takes its study of that form the whole way. Parodies have the great virtue of formalizing attention to the graphic and rhetorical codes that characterize any particular form. In this case, the project is clearly conceived and well-executed to play with the structures it is imitating. But parodic work has its limits, and this book, charming and smart, is clearly constrained by the fact that what it references, has such strong codes that working within them keeps the project bounded by that frame.
