Simon Johnston | Unsigned

Simon Johnston
Los Angeles, USA: Verb Edition, 2003
40 pp, 25.5 x 19.5 cm., softcover
Edition of 1000

"Even though the book Unsigned is a photographic project, at its heart it is also a study of language, or rather its absence, in this case. Both the empty signs and the graphic faux-captions are typically sites of information, but in both cases the language is absent or withheld."

- Simon Johnston, in conversation with Ben Schwartz for the Walker Art blog

Available from the publisher, here, for $20.00 US.
