2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bill Jacobson: Place (Series) showcases the acclaimed photographer's newest body of work, for which he won a 2012 Guggenheim Fellowship. The artist describes the images as "the result of inserting rectangles of various sizes and surfaces within both constructed and natural settings. They question what is 'real' and what is 'abstract', while suggesting that the creation of place is constant, stemming from need, choice, and desire." As opposed to the out-of-focus work for which he initially became known, these photographs speak to our perceptual interactions with the physical world that surrounds us. They are based on the idea that we live in a world of infinite images, while denying boundaries between interior and exterior, known and unknown, color swatch and landscape
