I'm Looking through You

by Tim Davis



First edition first impression in new condition.

I’m Looking Through You is an expansive, visual poem celebrating the glamorous surface of Los Angeles and its reach.

Animating Davis's wry observations and mesmerizing, color-pop geometry of the images is his decades-long gimlet-eyed meditation on making pictures. As photographer and writer Tim Davis states, “The camera is a machine that sees only surfaces. The world casts its spell, and the camera gobbles up its glamour, uncritically, with pure certainty, assuming there is nothing underneath.” Davis’s keenly observational images, interspersed with a selection of his writings on the medium―the joys and pitfalls of camera seeing―solidify I’m Looking Through You as an unabashed celebration of photography.
