Jamie Hawkesworth will launch his new book On Keeping a Notebook, published by The Gould Collection, on Thursday, November 7, at Offprint Paris.
From the press release: ‘On Keeping a Notebook, volume four of The Gould Collection, pairs forty-four photographs and five drawings by British photographer Jamie Hawkesworth with American writer Joan Didion’s essay On Keeping a Notebook. Through words for Didion and images for Hawkesworth, volume four focuses on the practice of collecting fragmentary thoughts and observations within an artist’s creative process. Hawkesworth’s photographs—shot from 2012 through 2019 in Japan, Mongolia, Romania, Russia, United States, United Kingdom, among other locations—are a personal record of his short pleasurable journeys. While Didion’s musings in her essay On Keeping a Notebook, written in 1966, examine the fluid line between fact and fiction through the comments and notes that fill her private journal.’
The Gould Collection is a series of books that brings together contemporary photographers with writers. The series is published in memory of Christophe Crison, a photobook collector from Paris who died tragically in July 2015 at the age of forty-five. The Gould Collection is co-edited by Laurence Vecten (Paris), Russet Lederman (New York City) and Yoko Sawada (Tokyo).
