NEW AND NOTABLE

White Road by Ivan Sigal. Steidl, October 15, 2012; ISBN: 386930538X

White Road consists of a two volume set, one primarily text, the other pictures, that explores Ivan Sigal’s photographic work over a ten year period in Central Asia. The publication accompanied an exhibition of the same body of work at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington DC in 2012 and 2013. The publication’s two volumes, beautifully produced, echo each other in text and image. The pictures function like little parts of speech, a noun here, a verb there, that collectively form a poetic interrogation of life in this part of the world. Sigal’s non-fiction text is comprised of fragments, much like his photographs, that form a kind of call-and-response to the images. Coordinated by Paul Roth, Senior Curator of Photography and Media Arts, this book and exhibition explore the role that photographic sequencing plays in the creation of narrative forms. —Russell Lord, Freeman Family Curator of Photographs
