On Keeping a Notebook

@ Hawkesworth, Jamie



Presentation by The Gould Collection

" On Keeping a Notebook, volume four of The Gould Collection pairs forty-four photographs and five drawings by British photographer Jamie Hawkesworth with American writer Joan Didion’s essay On Keeping a Notebook.

Through words for Didion and images for Hawkesworth, volume four focuses on the practice of collecting fragmentary thoughts and observations within an artist's creative process.

Hawkesworth's photographs—shot from 2012 through 2019 in Japan, Mongolia, Romania, Russia, United States, United Kingdom, among other locations—are a personal record of his short pleasurable journeys. While Didion's musings in her essay On Keeping a Notebook, written in 1966, examine the fluid line between fact and fiction through the comments and notes that fill her private journal. "

Text in English and Japanese. Exposed Swiss binding.

NB: Please note the price of this book has increased as of early December (€65 vs. €60) because the first copies we had were hand-delivered in Paris when the additional copies come from the United States to France (shipping + customs)... Thank you for your understanding.
