Essays by Amada Cruz
Composed of photographs taken between 1997 and 2003, Slater Bradley’s don’t let me disappear takes Holden Caulfield’s admonition as its title in a compendium that is part travelogue and part personal photo album. In these color images, Bradley isolates the small events and intimate moments that punctuate daily life. Prefaced by a W.H. Auden poem that reminds us that suffering occurs “while someone else is eating or opening a window,” this book is at once darkly romantic and emotionally evocative–and a reminder that the incidental is often the most meaningful.
