This diverse collection of writings by Taco Hidde Bakker addresses the philosophy, politics, and art of photography, with topics ranging from the tension between artist and model to the landscapes of the American West and the predicament of transcultural photography. Bakker selected and revised sixteen pieces of writing from a variety of publications spanning the past decade of his journeys through photography and art. In addition, he penned four new pieces especially for this book. Often engaging in close collaboration with the artists about whose work he writes, Bakker explores different literary forms in response to their views, with a recurring reference to poetry.
