Book Details

Richard Kalvar has spent over fifty years observing humans through his camera lens, trying to understand the ambiguous and mysterious relation between outward appearances and inner feelings. Not always successfully. With Selected Writings he shifts his gaze from what people physically reveal to what they write. That should be much clearer, but is it? Kalvar delicately navigates his way though the fog of expression, bumping along the way into joy, anger, confusion, incomprehensibility, and meaning often turned awry. What’s on offer here is a collection of bizarre and fascinating visual messages, both intentional and unintentional, cast out in the world The result is unexpected, and often very funny.
