I walk toward the sun which is always going down

@ Huck, Alan



Presentation by Mack Books:

" In Alan Huck's image-text book, ​I walk toward the sun which is always going down, an unnamed narrator wanders a city in the American Southwest, where their observations and encounters become catalysts for rumination on a wide range of subjects.

Shifting between photographs of the city's peripheries and an interior monologue written in first-person, fragmentary prose, this hybrid essay draws on the ambulatory works of writers such as W.G. Sebald and Annie Dillard, both of whom are incorporated into the network of literary and cultural references interwoven throughout the book's text.

Part metafiction about the working process of a photographer and part cross-disciplinary exploration of one's relationship to a particular place, the author utilizes the essential indeterminacy of both photography and written language to craft an exercise in attention that moves seamlessly between the two mediums."

Huck, Alan
