Selected as one of The New York Times' Top 10 Photo Books of 2012:
You have to respect a monograph whose own foreword likens the pictures to a psychotic arts-and-crafts scrapbooker. Slota starts with photographs, his own and others , then scratches, cuts and writes over them; the results are idiosyncratic, emotional and sometimes disturbing. An accompanying essay by Joyce Carol Oates (in which she writes about seeing his work in this magazine for the first time) describes the quick snaps of arrested narrative that make his images so mesmerizing. She writes, Woe to the mere writer whose words appear alongside the artist s visceral yet dreamlike works of unsurpassing beauty and unease! Well put. --The New York Times
