The photographs in this new collection of Charlie Hillhouse’s work appear simple and understated on newsprint. As the collection’s purely descriptive title suggests, there is no concerted theme or narrative that binds the photographs together. There is, instead, a feeling for the fleeting moments, and a sense of their humble importance. The ephemeral nature of the newspaper has the same anti-aesthetic quality of the photographs, and a seeming reluctance to declare itself art. It is an accessible object to be enjoyed, collected, treasured, and perhaps eventually destroyed. It also includes a black and white insert of photographs distorted beyond figurative recognition. Their abstraction is a jarring offset to the newsprint snapshots. This publication is produced in collaboration with Sunroom Press.
