A Period of Juvenile Prosperity

Twin Palms (2013)

Chosen by Garry Trinh

Over the past couple of years I’ve begun to realise that what I value most in a photo book or artwork, is the artist’s spirit, their ideas and processes.  Not the final object.

It wouldn’t have made a difference to me if A Period of Juvenile Prosperity was printed in gold or on toilet paper. I would still love it just as much. To me this project contains all the characteristics of a great work of art. If you ever come across this book, please take time to study it.  It’s simply exceptional.
