About this title


This monograph is the first for David Batchelor's remarkable Found Monochromes series. Since 1997, the London-based artist has been photographing single square and rectangle planes of uninterrupted white that he passes as he walks through London and places he visits. The images are informal and impromptu; shot from a uniform distance, the white planes are seen on a variety of backdrops: brick walls, car doors, metal fences and more. They are the backs of signs, number plates that have lost their number, empty billboards or faded messages. This body of work references the once radical tradition of monochrome paintings practiced by Malevich, Rodchenko, Yves Klein, Ad Reinhardt, Ellsworth Kelly and others. Found Monochromes Vol. 1 brings together the largest group of photographs from Batchelor's series, accompanied by a conversation between the philosopher Jonathan Ree and the artist.
