Trip – photographs by Susan Lipper

Trip is celebrated Grapevine photographer Susan Lipper’s new, conceptually ambitious artist’s book: an assembled narrative of a fictional road trip in America. The date is the present, but only slightly so. The viewer is cast without aid amongst snatches of text and vernacular objects, staged or found, that render the landscape neither familiar nor foreign. Semiotic interplay is introduced with seemingly objective signs and symbols, wonderfully enhanced by Barthelme’s brilliant clips of text.

Text: Barthelme Frederick. cm 29×25; pp. 112; BW ills.; hardcover with dust jacket. Publisher: powerHouse Books, New York, 1999.
