„Card catalogues“ might be most „photographic“ project by Erica Baum. Here she isn’t using photography for reproducing visual contents she found somewhere, but she translates, as photographers usually do, the three-dimensional world into the plane. Apart from the fact that she produced convincing images, I like the humor and the subliminal melancholia in her game with words.
