This recent collection contains a single group of photographs to which a time and place is clear – those made in New York just months after Hurricane Sandy flooded much of the city’s coastline. Pepper is intimately familiar with New York but less with the far edges of the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens that he visited a few months after this hurricane devastated neighborhoods populated by the bungalows of working-class people. This journey to the city’s geographic edge was to a realm that literally and figuratively exists at the margins. Here, Pepper photographed mostly unpeopled landscapes. The most elegiac of these images is a grainy scene of a bent flagpole with a frayed American flag set barely at half-mast; the flat landscape surrounding it seems to have been shorn clean (Extrait de la note de l’exposition par Sergio Larrain). Cet ouvrage accompagne une exposition itinérante en Russie et en Italie en 2014 et 2017 ; livre relié dans un coffret, photos en n.b.

Des exemplaires signés sont disponibles à la librairie.
