CHRISTOPHER ANDERSON »STUMP« – selected by THIS GROOT WASSINK

»While flipping through the 500+ books on the tables at Les Rencontres d’Arles this year, this was the book I found myself returning to over and over again. Without knowing anything about how or why these images were taken, I was intrigued. stump, I soon found out, is a selection of Anderson’s political pictures commissioned by New York Magazine. But rather than telling a story with a beginning and an end, these pictures are a meditation on faces. Maybe it’s the inf luence of Netflix’s series House of Cards that I’ve been watching recently, but in all these close-ups of politicians trying to come across as sincere and beautiful I now see a cunning Frank Underwood, who will do anything he can to fulfil his own goals. Looking at the sur face is fascinating.«
