Item description for Roni Horn: This is Me, This is You by Roni Horn...

Description: This is Me, This is You is Roni Horn's handbook of identity. It is also a book with no end. Peruse the 48 images taken with a point-and-shoot camera and, as you arrive at the last image, flip the book over and begin again. Each image reappears, in a version taken just seconds later. A single and singular portrait of one young girl taken over a two-year period, This is Me, This is You evokes a multitude--of identities, images, and icons--of everything that can be subtly revealed in the process of visiting and revisiting a single person through a camera, through time. Ultimately, it is the multitude that exists in all of us.

Reviews - What do customers think about Roni Horn: This is Me, This is You?

Subtle, yet illuminative  Feb 5, 2008
I am a full time professional photographer, and have been collecting photography books for awhile now. At first I thought the concept of the book, ie. photos taken of a girl minutes apart, seemed silly, and couldn't be that interesting. In fact just the opposite is true. Without the distraction of fancy studio lighting, and having the subject 'pose', we get to see the sea of emotions and internal states that go on in one human being, which is really indicative of the human race. Where is the 'core' personality when all these phases and changes happen? This book is really about a soul in progress, and is in a large degree a reflection of ourselves. It's actually one of my favorite books of portraits, and I have MANY books of portraits. I am bored silly of fancy lighting and models posing themselves into the exact same mold. Every time I look at this book, I can see something new. It's quite beautiful. However, I doubt that everyone will 'get' this book. It's not about celebrities, beautiful people, and the photography itself might appear on the surface to be amateurish. However, with the advent of every person on the block having excellent digital cameras that can take very good technical photographs, I think the notion of a 'photographer' is changing from the techincal, to one of a person having a strong point of view, and a vision.
This book may take awhile to grow on you, but it is very beautiful, very humanitarian, and highly recommended if you are willing to do a bit of 'work' to go a bit deeper than the average photography/portrait book out there now on the shelves. Great stuff.
