Book Reviews

I imagine Geeting as a kindergartner willfully coloring outside the lines, scribbling with glee, delighting in breaking the rules and not giving a F. In an image saturated world that is burdened with homogeneity, with photographers getting A’s for adhering to conventions, or even bending them mildly, Getting does the wrong things in all the right ways. 

Ben Alper’s A Series of Occurrences portrays situations whose causations are mysterious and whose futures are unknown. The pictures seem like fragments; the narrative a chain of islands bound together by proximity but containing unique presence unto themselves. The book’s well realized sequence provides easy transit from one to the next.
