SIGNED by Paolo Pellegrin, Jim Goldberg, Susan Meiselas, Alec Soth, Mikhael Subotzky, Ginger Strand. This is number 214 out of 500. In May 2011, five Magnum photographers - Paolo Pellegrin, Jim Goldberg, Susan Meiselas, Alec Soth, Mikhael Subotzky - and a writer, Ginger Strand, set out from. Two weeks and 1750 miles later, they arrived in. Together, they documented their experience, the result of which is a new, limited edition book which is a collection of objects: a book, five bumper stickers, a newspaper, two fold-outs, three cards, a poster and five zines, all in a signed and numbered box.We knew each other through Magnum, obviously, but wed never actually tried to work together, says Soth. We wanted to see what that would be like, to see if we could create a kind of polyphonic sound.
Hopefully the box book achieves that. It also gave us an opportunity to push each other creatively and conceptually, which I think has carried over into our individual work. The book does not attempt to document the American Southwest in a traditional sense.
Instead, it uses the prototypically western experience of a road trip as an entry point into depicting the region. Some of us are used to working only on immersive, multiyear projects, says Subotzky. Obviously this was very different.
Doing it collectively brought a great energy and looseness to the work. The box, with all its moving and arrangeable pieces, really reflects that and reflects what we found on the roada divided and often contradictory society, unsure about its identity and future.
