About the book:

This new title presents, in its entirety, a new series of photographs by Vik Muniz, completed while he was artist-in-residence at the Frick Art & Historical Center in Pittsburgh. Muniz used his inimitable photographic eye to capture Clayton--the historical home of 19th century American industrialist Henry Clay Frick--through the eyes of a child. Muniz uses a 19th century 8 x 10 inch view camera to record a fictional narrative, using a deliberately low point of view that immerses the viewer in the perspective of a child. The result is a series of ominous and intriguing images that approach history in an imaginative, non-linear fashion. The book "Clayton Days" also features an essay by renowned author and photography critic Andy Grundberg that places this new series within the context of Muniz's past production and within the tradition of contemporary photography, and an extended dialogue with Muniz conducted by Linda Benedict-Jones, executive director of the Silver Eye Center for Photography. Paperback, 96 pages, 11.25 x 9 inches, 74 b&w illustrations
