Bill Jacobson: A Series of Human Decisions

Recently we had a very nice weekend in Vienna. We visited the Walther König bookstore in the Museumsquartier and there I was lucky to find this one: Bill Jacobson: A Series of Human Decisions published by Decode Books in 2009.

The monograph includes photographs from 2004 to 2009 as well as an interview between the artist and Ian Berry. In the text Bill Jacobson states that the in focus project is "about the idea that we're always surrounded by other people's creations and this becomes our visual world. We move constantly from one fabricated arena to another."

Another book with the simple title "Photographs" has been published by Hatje Cantz in 2005 showing Bill Jacobson's out of focus work he is most known for. Take a look at his great portfolio as well.
