Book of the Week: A Pick by Maxwell Anderson

Karma by Oscar Monzon
This week's Book of the Week pick comes from photographer and publisher Maxwell Anderson who selected Karma by Oscar Monzon published by RVB / Dalpine.

"Intense, confusing, aggressive, playful, edgy... What, why, how. This book slaps me about a bit, which I quite enjoy. A couple of times I thought I got the drift of what was going on, then it hopped, skipped and jumped somewhere else. Details in images take on different implications because of the mashed-up influence of preceding images... and then a crudely made collage appears (I feel like I shouldn't tell you because they seem like they should be tiny surprises). I hated it, I loved it, I thought it was trashy, I thought it was genius. Whatever it is, it makes me feel slightly unstable. Whatever I think of it, it's a bold thing to make which many people probably won't like, which I'm totally in support of!!" -- Maxwell Anderson
