Introduction by Justine Kurland
Essay by Thomas Struth
Edited by Barney Kulok & Justine Kurland
The book Janice Guy is the first monograph of Guy's radical experiments in photography during the late 1970s. Made while she was a student at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, this selection of photographs sheds light on Guy's work as an artist before she gained international renown as a gallerist of contemporary art. The artist Thomas Struth, a fellow student in Germany at the time, has written a moving essay for this book about their formative years and ongoing friendship. The book also includes an introduction by artist Justine Kurland which makes a compelling case for the reconsideration of these photographs today. The work presented in Janice Guy, much of which appears here for the first time, reverberates as never before with the current obsession for producing and circulating images of ourselves.
