The Heart is a Sandwich
Funny, profound, absurd, and filled with unexpected beauty, this new photobook from American artist Jason Fulford is a collection of twelve stories drawn from a decade of encounters with Italy. Taking the form of a novel-sized paperback, the book includes meetings with ball-breaking bakers, an exploding museum cellar, Aldo Rossi’s notes on happiness, the center of the Earth, and Guido Guidi’s garage.
Fulford’s pictures are deceptively simple, imbued with a gift for composition that brings forth metaphors and meaning. Known inter-nationally for his skill as an editor, Fulford uses layered articulation and careful sequencing to suggest ambiguous meaning and invite endless reading.
