Jason Fulford

  • Photography and book publishing are inextricable in the work of Jason Fulford. As co-publisher of the long-running J&L books (with Leanne Shapton) and the maker of six monographs collecting and sequencing his photography, the craft and design of bookmaking and a keen attention to the visual associations between  images is in the foreground of his practice. But in the not too distant background, storytelling and performance  play supporting roles, both in concocting events as stages for his photographic work, weaving mystic fictions around his book projects, or as a lark, in one of many informal collaborations with his partner Tamara Shopsin. As a photographer, his images are informed more by discovery than invention, as Fulford is a unquenchable seeker who travels to distant corners of the globe. Recurring motifs include games of chance, formal echoes, the relationship of a picture to a story,  a dry sense of humor, and an aerobie.
