The Gould Collection, Volume 2 (New York: The Gould Collection, 2017).
The Gould Collection is a series published to honor the late Christophe Crison, a much-loved figure whose passion for photography and collecting has been immortalized as the project’s inspiration––each volume is a tribute to the photographers, writers, and artists found on his shelves. In this second issue, printed in English and Japanese following Crison’s interest in Japanese cinema and photography), Leiter’s photos and Auster’s fiction combine to complicate the formal conventions of the traditional photo album. The images themselves split the page and gutter, while the text might appear on a small, silvery page that is bound into the album, despite its difference in size. This kind of play that this series makes possible is a way to revive Crison with his own devotions: in new combinations, a dynamic totally original to Crison’s memory is able to be shared, and come alive.
