Wrinkles by JR - OPTIONAL

Wrinkles by JR, words by Julie Pugeat. PICTURE BOOK. Phaidon, 2019. $18. 9781838660167



This compilation of photographs is simply narrative with the explanation of what wrinkles are and what they represent. Each photograph is black and white with a bright orange background. 

I love the idea of celebrating wrinkles and the aging body, but I found that the unchanging color scheme started to get a little boring. That said, this simple color pattern might be ideal for babies and their developing eyesight. I loved reading about the photographer in the afterward and learning about his public art displays.
