Tribulations of a Westerner in a Western World
by Vincent Dachy
Someone has taken a trip and taken photographs of that trip and someone else has been invited to watch a slideshow of the trip taken. There is a road, there is an abstract painting, there is a viewer who wishes he could live in a televised loop of a sunset and another who wonders why people are fat. Tribulations of a Westerner in the Western World is a stunning first book by Vincent Dachy, a narrated slideshow of inner and outer geographies complete with 52 black and white photographs taken by the author.
The crocheted hyperbolic plane on the cover of Tribulations of a Westerner in the Western World was made by Anitra Menning and photographed by Christine Wertheim of The Institute For Figuring.
