CHRISTIAN BOLTANKSI
Flammarion Contemporary, $65

Christian Boltanski – internationally acclaimed photographer, sculptor, painter, and installation artist – tackles the problems of death, memory, and loss in his art that draws heavily from his own life. Boltanski’s art can be either dark and disturbing or playful, and sometimes both at once. This monograph examines every aspect of his art, from his unusual choice of materials – newspaper clippings, used clothing, photographs of photographs – to the spirits that haunt his work.
