Reading List - The Big Sleep by Patrick Pound

This 80pp casebound photo book shows images of people and animals in tranquil repose from a collection by artist Patrick Pound titled The Big Sleep. The found images are actually a subset of a broader collection of Pound’s called People Who Look Dead But (Probably) Aren’t. The book also features an essay about the project by Daniel Palmer. When asked to describe his collections of found photography to the Guardian newspaper, Pound jokingly replied “My work has the look of being made by someone who, having tried to explain the world and having failed, has been reduced to collecting it.”
