For No. 1, editor John Pilson focuses on a diverse and compelling group of portraits. With a nod to John Szarkowski’s Looking At Photographs, he writes specifically about each image chosen, striking a tone that is at once humorous, poignant and surprising. Pilson’s ability to weave together philosophical, art historical and pop cultural references into a series of cogent yet improvisational texts is deeply humanizing. As he states in his introduction, each pairing is “a writer in a duet with a photograph”, an attempt to find something that resonates as opposed to something “that merely explains or dissects.”
