"My Room, portrait d'une génération est le premier livre de John Thackwray. Pendant cinq ans, il a traversé la planète pour documenter les modes de vie de ceux et celles de sa génération en les questionnant sur l'état du monde. Il présente dans ce recueil cent portraits parmi le millier de participants au projet.

D'une réserve amérindienne à un temple bouddhiste népalais, en passant par les camps de réfugiés syriens, tous ces jeunes, photographiés dans leur chambre, décrivent leur quotidien. Entre photographie sociale et anthropologie visuelle, cet ouvrage humaniste a pour vocation de nous sensibiliser sur le monde qui nous entoure, sa mutation et ses inégalités. Par-delà les continents, la diversité des modes de vie et la multiplicité des cultures, le projet My Room révèle l'humanité d'une jeunesse tiraillée entre aspiration à la modernité et attachement à son identité."

A book certainly a bit unusual on L'Ascenseur Végétal as it could be considered less a "photobook" and more a travel book than what we usually list, but despite a rather traditional design and the presence of contextual descriptions, this self-published project certainly remains interesting and deserves our attention.

Each portrait comes with a text, in the facing page, written by the person being photographed.

All texts in French only; an English edition of the book will be available in September 2017.

    .Last copy!.The portraits appearing in Ad Infinitum are from tombstones found in cemeteries in Hong-Kong.This series is a work both on the passage of time and the loss of memory, as the portraits all vanish little by little; and also on the disappearance of the individual within the humanity, as the vanishing process is similar to all the photographies...
