Portraits of a House

Houses are remarkable places in many respects: They are conducive to encounters as well as to representation and retreat. The focus of this book is on the house of the specialist in American studies, writer, and exhibition organizer David Galloway in the city of Forcalquier in southern France. Over the course of forty years, he has transformed a ruin into a personal refuge—fitted out with mementoes, antiquities, and contemporary art—in which his eventful life is reflected. The book presents the works of ten artists who occupied themselves photographically with this special place in very different ways. The result is a collective portrait of a house that, on its part, is a portrait of its owner.
