Milk and Melancholy

Milk and Melancholy

Underline Studio, Toronto, Ontario, 2008

Description

Milk and Melancholy traces the history of the iconic milk splash from its origins in the scientific photography of Harold Edgerton to its appropriation by contemporary art and photography. Writer Kenneth Hayes’ comprehensive study is illustrated by more than 100 images, most of them in full color. With this quiet, clean design, the heavy academic text is at maximum readability and Hayes’ argument is made easily accessible by the respectful treatment of the accompanying images.
