Dictionary by Anne Geene & Arjan de Nooy
|Author||Anne Geene; Arjan de Nooy|
|Publisher||Blind Finch Books|
By varying their context, photographs inevitably gain new meanings. To create ‘Dictionary’, Anne Geene teamed up with fellow Dutch photographer Arjan de Nooy to combine a list of the 200 most commonly used English words with 200 “random” images from their archives. On each right-hand page, a word is randomly paired with a photograph. The pages are then perforated between the picture and the word, giving the reader the ability to link every word with every picture, thus opening up myriad possibilities for visual and linguistic interpretation. The book is a manifestation of Geene and De Nooy’s conviction that an image can assume a meaning in any context.
