This photography book makes an intimate index from fashion icon and social media aficionado Nick Wooster’s personal collection of garments, accessories, and ephemera. Vivid reproductions recall the xerox technique, with outlines drawn by tight shadows cast against the bright white background that frames Wooster’s attachment objects in an unfixed but definite archival space. Presented this way, with the reader’s freedom to flip and revisit and re-encounter these seemingly unmediated items from this catalog of Wooster’s life, NW implies how a photobook-as-index can assemble an identity as well as depend on a readerly kind of activation to bring its collageable subjects to life.
