Christian Patterson - Bottom of the Lake - König Books 2015
In Bottom of the Lake, Christian Patterson takes an allusive view of his hometown, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.
Patterson has resuscitated his family’s telephone book, reprinting each page and all of its handmade annotations; whatever materials he found within it have made it into his new book. He also inserts some new material of his own: photographs, drawings, cut-and-pasted messages. The result is a uniquely personal portrait of a place , a puzzle he never attempts to solve.
His work was exhibited at Robert Morat Galerie, Berlin, Germany in 2015.
