Revisting the Bonaventure Hotel by Jaspar Joseph-Lester




This book is a photo-essay that describes the life of a building through a range of film stills, photographic images and written citations. With Revisiting the Bonaventure Hotel we wander between references to Fredric Jameson, John Portman and Arnold Schwarzenegger as we view a world through different perspectives: vertical, horizontal and rotating. This is a story about the image.

‘I loved it. Looks like a Chris Marker book, so glamorous.’
Chris Kraus
