Jason Langer - Possession, Nazraeli, 2013, Portland

 

Langer follows in the tradition of the flâneur-photographer. His images are, as he puts it, the product of “walking the streets alone as a stranger in a strange land.” To shadow Langer on his walks is to visit the haunts of amusement parks, lonely bars, nighttime streets and alleys, beautiful women and their chaperones, gardens, hotels, and supper clubs. Both the still life and the intimate figure study are frequent objects of his quiet gaze. Regardless of their subject, Langer's images return us to a place where what happens in front of the lens is unanticipated and distinctly photographic. (from the publisher)

Hardcover, cloth bound, edition of 1,000 copies, signed.
