On July 24th 2008 I did a Google image search using +walker evans +sherrie levine as my search parameter. This book is a collection of all twenty-six images of Allie Mae Burroughs, the most famous of the Evans photos of the Burroughs family that I could find on that day.

They are positioned to match the original print with any white space around the image representing the cropped area of the reproduced picture.

File size, pixel aspect ratio and URL of all images are included as a frame of reference. It is only in reading the file names that we can identify if the reproduced image is a Levine or an Evans.

Thank you for taking the time to reply to the quandary I had presented.

Really both. Obviously, this book is (yet another) spin on Levine’s “After Walker Evans” from 1980. The discourse of appropriation and copyrights reached a new level in the past few years due to the Internet and the relative ease with which we can duplicate and distribute files online. Think: “The Work of Art in the Age of Google Image Search”…This is true to most of my recent work, btw. See:
I guess with this book I was mostly interested in the subtle differences between the photos as a result of various jpg compressions, the variations in pixilation and color. Ruff’s work definitively comes to mind, especially his “JPEGS” as well as “Nudes”.
And finally, I was fascinated by the fact that the distinction between the Walker source and the Levine was only clear by including the original URL and filename…

I am curious...

Was this a book an influence from Sherrie Levine's photo series where she caused a sensation amongst the art world by pushing the boundaries of copyright -- where Levine basically flat-art copied the work of well known photos such as Walker Evans, etc? Or is this an influence of how Thomas Ruff uses digital images and uses the interpolation of the image as a part of his content in order to push envelope in terms of perception?
