Omaha Sketchbook by Gregory Halpern
A collection of works by Gregory Halpern, an American photographer who is a candidate of the international photographer group "Magnum Photos" and who received a Guggenheim scholarship in 2014.
Over the course of 15 years, the author took photographs in Omaha, Nebraska, and expressed his feelings about the heartland of America. expressed as an image. In this book, which reproduces a collection of works made in a drawing paper sketchbook in 2009, contact prints are laid out in a rough collage on each page. The images reveal the ambivalence of loathing and not being attracted to this land, and the artist's enjoyment of dissonance and unexpected harmony is evident. This book is a reflection on America, the men and boys who live there, and the structures of aggressiveness, imperfection, and power.
