Temple: Show & Tell Editions, 2020
22 x 22cm, 44pp plus card covers. Photographic artist’s book where three fictitious (ie unmade) films are shown via film stills that show the action. Each film is from a different time, have different techniques and different ratios. A “poster” for each film is also reproduced. The story is of a man trying to take advantage of a young girl by giving her a drug in a drink – the first two films (of the 20s and 40s perhaps) show his success but the last “film” when the young guy attempts to “roofie” the girl he is unsuccessful. The same actor and actress are in each film. The book is a document of how societal attitudes towards the exploitation of women have thankfully changed.
