DOUG RICKARD »A NEW AMERICAN PICTURE« – selected by GERRY BADGER

»Doug Rickard makes street photographs, but not on the street. He uses Google Street View to make American urban landscapes that reference American street photography of the past fifty years, but also look like Gerhard Richter paintings. But they are street photographs that describe the ›other side of the tracks‹ with implicit political intent. A NEW AMERICAN PICTURE is an important book, demonstrating that photography can do pictorial beauty and social reality in one body of work, without them contradicting each other.«
