Peres Projects, 2009 First edition Softcover, 280 pages, 285 x 285 mm Condition: Fine
Published posthumously in the same year as his death of drug overdose aged only 27, this first comprehensive survey of Dash Snow's Polaroids chronicles the artist's early marauding on Manhattan's Lower East Side and conveys Snow's love of the photograph as memento.
Since his late teens, Snow had used photography to document his days and nights of extreme hedonism–nights which, as he famously claimed, he might not otherwise remember. Reproduced at both full-bleed and actual size, these artifact-like images trace the escapades of Snow and his friends in their lawless commitment to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Polaroids finds poignance in grime, ecstatic poetry in poor life choices, or, like one of the possible titles printed on the book's cover, simply "situations galore."
