|In Almost Every Picture #10|
The first book presented dozens of photographs of a woman taken by her husband, vacation photos with a strikingly similar pose, the wife, standing center frame, her hair, clothes and the backgrounds changing over decades. They are an odd collection, so carefully taken, each scene so specifically preserved, but the husband's presence is only as a photographer. The images were found at a flea market, and as with every collection discovered this way, KesselsKramer note that they will gladly return the photos should a rightful owner make themselves known. The second volume featured a different kind of story -- images shot by a taxi driver of a female passenger and the car, frequently stopping to photograph their journey. Book three collects images of animals captured by a motion sensor camera -- deer and a variety of small creatures wander by behaving as humans seldom see them. In volume four we see a series of images of fraternal female twins, meticulously dressed and identically styled. Taken in Barcelona during WWII, the final picture features just one of the young women, standing off center. Next was the first book in an apparent series trend -- documentations of pets, shot by their loving owners. Book five shows a family's love and pride for their dog, experimenting with different film and lighting to photograph the beautiful dalmatian.

Book eight borrows images from a blog and familiar early 2000s internet meme -- a picture with the text “I have no idea what you’re talking about… so here’s a bunny with a pancake on its head.” Deeply loved by his owner, Oolong was the star of daily blog posts depicting the rabbit with strange objects balanced on his head. Book nine features another pet, this time a black dog, and a family's long attempt to take his picture. Throughout the set of photos, the dog appears as a strange dark form, fluffy and canine-shaped, but faceless. After years of effort, the book concludes with some successful pictures of the animal, his owners finally figuring out how to photograph him.

Like books 1-5, books 6-10 are now all collected in a box set, which includes the now out of print In Almost Every Picture #7. The 1-5 collection is now sold out, and I expect the 6-10 collection will follow. -- Sarah Bradley
