RODARTE - CATHERINE OPIE & ALEC SOTH - CABINET DE CURIOSITIES AT BROWNS - LONDON - 2011
A large coffee table book filled with never-before-seen imagery from the Rodarte sisters, Kate and Laura Mulleavy, entitled Rodarte, Catherine Opie, Alec Soth. Features hand-painted covers by the artist Rebekah Miles. Each cover is distinctly unique and one-off. The sisters enlisted photographer Catherine Opie to capture their favourite pieces from past collections on a varied range of models, and photographer Alec Soth to document the Californian locations that inspired the sisters. Hard backed. A separate booklet of annotations, written by John Kelsey, accompanies the book with text that refers to the inspiration and inner-thoughts behind certain pieces.
