Mrs. Merryman's Collection

@ Merryman, Anne-Sophie



Ceci n'est pas exactement un livre de photographie. Anne-Sophie Merryman présente dans cet ouvrage une partie de la collection de cartes postales de sa grand-mère Anne-Marie. Bien que les deux femmes n'aient pas pu se rencontrer, cette collection aura une une influence sur leurs vies...

Les photographies qui figurent sur ces cartes postales sont le plus souvent de composition très simple, et le sujet est toujours inattendu, parfois drôle ou intriguant. Un livre apaisant, par la beauté et la grâce des images et par le design épuré du livre lui-même.

Ce livre a reçu plusieurs prix et a figuré dans de nombreuses listes des meilleurs livres photo de 2012.

This book is listed in "The Photobook: A HIstory volume III" by Martin Parr & Gerry Badger.

From the publisher :

"Anne-Marie Merryman collected postcards between 1937 and 1980, a collection inherited by her granddaughter, Anne Sophie Merryman.

The book, Mrs. Merryman’s Collection, presents the postcards which together form the story of two intertwined lives - one life lived travelling the world through the postcard images, the other a child and then adult whose life and relationship to her own history and her future were influenced by the collection.

While Anne-Marie and Anne Sophie never met, both their lives were inspired by the postcard collection - a relationship that was born, and continues to flourish, in the realms of the imagination.

Mrs. Merryman’s Collection is the winner of the First Book Award 2012, an award by the National Media Museum and MACK to support the publication of a book by a previously unpublished photographer."

  • Publisher's presentation: "An Archeology of Fear and Desire is an attempt to recontextualise Israel as place and metaphor, exploring longing, belonging and exclusion. Frédéric Brenner follows up his opus Diaspora with a visual essay about Israel, a land of devouring myths in which constructs-- social and religious--perpetuate a tyranny of roles, which...
