White stiff wrappers, with photographically illustrated dust jacket.

160 black and white reproductions of travel photographs taken between 1989-1993, and published to look like xeroxes. Like Richard Prince, Wool is an excellent if underrated photographer, best-known for his painting.

Wool's travel photographs, taken between 1989 and 1993, are here reproduced as low-tech photocopies. Featuring stray dogs, street scenes, architectural details and still lifes, the grainy, high-contrast, nearly abstract work suggests the fleeting nature of travel and the stolen moments that collectively comprise lived experience.
