Optimism, Autocar Volume 10
I have always had the dream to make books that would mirror a life formed by the wind pushing us, by the fires I always ignite much to the police’s chagrin: books that, like my photographs, my drawings, my writing – like an attitude – are not produced but crafted.
Together with Martin d’Orgeval as the conductor, and Gerhard Steidl as the wizard-publisher, I have ventured to gather these energies and to follow my intuition, to adjoin one by one my spelling mistakes, my un-photogenic works, my pen’s pirouettes, their reverberating souls – to take you with me through mountains of dreams over oceans of laughter and into my life shared with millions whose loving eyes rest on me.
Autocar, Omnibus is a series of tailored books of indescribable forms linking the artist, who is driving the bus, with his readers/passengers who are often models, victims, fatally delivered to the camera’s shutter and the drawn line; linking their fantasies, their needs for evasion, and offering shelter within these whimsical books.
And now the adventure continues with new collages, drawings and painted portraits to enjoy! Ensure your place on the ongoing Autocar journey with the new volumes six to eleven.
