9781897299043: One Eye

Through the Lens of a Master Cartoonist

One Eye is a collection of paired photographs by Charles Burns that captures the strange undertones of a staggering range of objects and locales. From urban and pristine landscapes to flesh and food, the visual combinations are at the same time ambiguously uneasy and starkly coherent. Sandwiched together without room to breathe, the images are given distinctive symbiotic relationships. In some cases they initially appear as a single picture, while in others the shots are drastically dissimilar; regardless, the results are always complimentary. "Random Selection" juxtaposes the small orange square of a color selector card with an appropriately matched peeling sunburn. Random though they may be, Burns's choices are clearly the product of his unique rationale, carefully arranged into revealing pairs. One Eye is his world digested through a lens, and evidence of the scope of his
visual language.

D+Q presents One Eye as part of its Petits Livres series: affordable art books dedicated to acknowledging the wide variety of talent within the comics community and beyond.
