Elisabeth Tonnard - The Man of the Crowd
The Man of the Crowd
48 pages plus a foldout sheet
23.5 x 19.5 cm / 9.25 x 7.7 inches
"This book is a reflection on Edgar Allan Poe’s short story ‘The Man of the Crowd’ and a street occurrence photographed in Paris. The main part of the work is a series of 56 photographs, tracking a 21st century flâneur, followed by imagetexts based on linguistic analyses of Poe’s story. Each book is marked with a distinct word from Poe’s story, which limits the edition to the number of different words in the tale."
