Description
An artist whose work combines aspects of photography, text, sculpture, video, and assemblage—with works in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, and the Whitney Museum of American Art—Lewis Koch here gives us a collection of his "found text" photos. These black and white images, spanning 25 years and four continents, capture the sometimes mysterious, occasionally humorous, often cryptic presence of words in the everyday landscape, revealing obscure and sometimes eccentric voices.

"Beautiful. Nostalgic. A wasteland of words. These photographs, messages in a bottle. I am completely moved."—Jen Benka

"Absolutely brilliant! A real trip down Memory Lane, Lover's Lane, Tornado Alley, the Valley of the Dolls, Clowntown, Garages of the Damned, Flanders Fields, the Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Buddha Pest, Can't Stop Now, Be Still, Get Well, Go to Hell, Hill and Dale, and Dullsville. Koch's camera eye is like a fist that punches the daylights out of the nightmares we call life. His word pictures are the ransom note we write to death."—Michael William Doyle
