Spreads from one of the four versions of the publication Experiments in Black by Lotta Antonsson. Produced in very small numbers to coincide with Antonsson’s first solo exhibition in the UK—Experiments in Black, a Permanent Project @theregencytownhouse for the 2010 Brighton @photofringe.
Specially written for the publication is a terrific text by photographer @jasonevansfoto, which remains the only constant across the four different versions of the book. Designed by Alex Rich, the book beautifully translates Jason and Lotta’s conversations.
From my text recently published online by @verktidskrift: “Interspaced between the thin white image pages are thicker black pages upon which the text written by Jason Evans appears. Printed in glossy black on black the text winds and shifts between two gendered figures and a child, and between similarity and difference— slipping between in and on the surface of things, to the transformation of them through time, orientation and damage. These shifts, translations, repositionings and juxtapositions are photography theory manifest as fiction—just one that doesn’t assume a singular position.”

I’ve been busy recently writing about this brilliant little book and the exhibition it accompanied: Experiments in Black by @osannastoltont Lotta Antonsson, a Permanent Project at @theregencytownhouse & the 2010 @photofringe. One of four versions, the publication also includes beautiful writing from @jasonevansfoto and was designed by Alex Rich. Looking forward to my text being published online by the Swedish photography journal @verktidskrift next month and sharing more of an important exhibition that was very much a landmark for me. 📸@andrewpbruce #LottaAntonsson#JasonEvans#AlexRich#verktidskrift2018
Thank you ❤️ #ingested#StephenMashburn & #JasonEvans 💙 for reasons beyond my control did not attend the concert but somehow managed to connect. Thank you very much for visiting Mexico. Come back soon!
When you’re a boy. A photo book showcasing the work of stylist Simon Foxton. A beautiful little publication showing great work over a 20 year period of so. Included here are portraits by Jason Evans from the 1991 (issue 94) of id which included Edward Enninful.
They look good here in the book with more of a white border. And if I’m gonna be really observant.... a touch more cat flap than you get in the magazine 😂 books not for sale but if you need issue 94 of ID you can get that above. (link in bio) A great issue. #simonfoxton#edwardenninful#jasonevans
2017 BG exhibitor @jasonevansfoto (from his 'Strictly' series) gracing the front of this @tate book that I came across at the @weareprimary book shop today. This was the first major show of photography to ever take place at Tate Britain. There's a good selection of books & records @weareprimary btw, worth a rummage #jasonevans#boningtongallery#tate
