AIPAD 2013: Doug Keyes

Noonday Demon – Andrew Solomon (2010) ©Doug Keyes
from the Collective Memory series

Doug Keyes (b.1964) is best known for his Collective Memory series of photographs, in which he condenses the content of a book into one photograph, through the use of multiple exposure.

The photographs, re-presented at the same size as the original book, provide a wonderful symphony of luminous color and texture, of opaque pages rendered transparent, concealing as much as they reveal.

His work can be found in the Akron Art Museum and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art amongst others. Collective Memory was published as a monograph in 2008 by Decode Books.
