Christopher Wool



This book gathers photographs taken by the artist between 2015 and 2017—dust roads, gravel roads, roads partly overgrown or full of tire tracks, roads through desert and fields of rocks, through sparse woods and along precipices. Wool’s roads are not purposeful trajectories toward destinations but the roads of perpetual, endless motion for motion’s sake. In Wool’s black-and-white photographs, only seldom does a fork in the road offer the viewer an apparent choice of which way to go. And though each photograph comes from a different location, the place changing from one shot to the next, it still feels like one long road traveled under the clear light of the Texas sun.

Each copy comes signed by the artist.
