Vacationist is a curated collection of found 35mm slides; a meditation on discarded objects and an ode toward them.
By presenting the lost records of ordinary lives in a seemingly neutral yet curated manner, isolated memories are embedded with gentle plot and structure. Scenes of easily recognizable monuments and unrecognizable subjects convey themes of both intimacy and solitude.
A curatorial presence is delicately woven through the book as patterns and repetitions emerge. Dossier Industries’ inaugural publication imbues paraphernalia of the past with a new power, revealing the timelessness of our relationships to place and one another.
