— 10×10 Photobooks

About David Senior’s selection for the 10×10 Reading Room:

Most of the time, I am generally overwhelmed by the volume of materials that comes through the library where I work. In the process, I manage to see a lot of things. This suits my taste – I like the idea of accumulation and the strange and funny connections that can arise from chance groupings of books. They can tell a story or create a weird sentence. I also think that this is how thought works: – resembling a pile of books – where words and images mingle and bounce off of each other so as to create little messages and subtle truths.
