Keith Wilson's newest Publication Studio title, See I Saw is a collection of photographs of museum patrons documenting famous artwork with digital cameras or smartphones. A cultural phenomenon of more recent years, the intent of such photographs could be seen as an attempt to prove to one's peers that the documenter is culturally savvy and relevant (#museumselfie, #artselfie); photographing the photographer lends a slightly eerie, voyeuristic "big brother" element to the strata of self-documenting one's experiences. This book comments on just how much we find it necessary to identify ourselves through the gaze of others, while still being a participant of it.
The special edition of See I Saw comes with an original collage cover by Keith Wilson.
