Synopsis: The yard sale is a perfect platform for bizarre conjunctions of objects, perhaps the only stage upon which the Compte de Lautréamont's famous ?chance meeting on a dissecting-table of a sewing machine and an umbrella? might occur of its own will. In turning his lens to the random constellations formed by rummaging and perusing, Adam Bartos has struck gold, with an idea so simple it seems odd nobody had thought of it before. His still lifes of "chance meetings" find compositional fodder in vacuum cleaners, flippers and board games, portrayed to suggest only the tiniest hint of formal properties. A pair of weathered skateboards is silhouetted against black asphalt littered with grass clippings, a close-up of the shimmering coral-colored interior of a mid-century suitcase is contrasted against a blue rhinestone and white linens; each image points to a lifestyle, a narrative of outgrown toys and discarded hobbies. The clean rendering and saturated pigmentation of Bartos' prints prevents these cast-off objects from accruing nostalgia, however, and they are closer in feel to an anthropological project than a rumination on bygone playthings. Photographing at close range from an elevated vantage point, Bartos allows the viewer to connect the dots, supplying only the raw combinations of materials for our story-making. The book is introduced with a story by Raymond Carver.

Book Description Damiani, 2009. Edited by Raymond Carver. English text. Bologna, 2009; hardback, pp. 128, col. plates, cm 23,5x35. In the Yard Sale Photographs work, Bartos turns his lens to random arrangements of objects encountered by chance at tag sales, creating lush, "found" still lifes that resonate both formally and metaphorically. Taken at close range from an elevated vantage point, Bartos concentrates on fragments of the stuff relegated to boxes in our garages, revealing their hidden aesthetic potential. A pair of weathered skateboards silhouetted against black asphalt littered with grass clippings becomes a compressed formal abstract composition. Akin to early 20th century photographs that celebrated the industrial gleam of the Machine Age, Bartos' images give dignity to our 21st century castoffs. A close-up of the shimmering coral colored interior of a mid-century suitcase contrasted by a blue rhinestone and white linens within, is one of several photographs that invite the viewer to imagine a personal narrative. Presented in saturated pigment prints, the humble beauty of Bartos' chosen objects becomes monumental. The book is introduced with a story by Raymond Carver. After studying film at New York University, Bartos turned his attention to still photography. A six-month stay in the Ocean Park neighborhood of Los Angeles in the late 1970s provided the setting for his important early series of Southern California streetscapes and interiors, which were published in his 2006 book, Boulevard. His photographs are represented in numerous public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the J. Paul Getty Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Bookseller Inventory # 1829467
