A captivating collection of his mother's photo albums, Michael Snow's latest artist's book illuminates patterns and motifs in the passage of time.

Over the past half-century, through works such as the milestone avant-garde film Wavelength (1967), Toronto-based artist Michael Snow (born 1928) has explored the nature of perception, consciousness, language and temporality. This last theme is particularly relevant to his latest artist's book, which is dedicated to the life of his adventurous mother, Marie-Antoinette Françoise Carmen Levesque Snow Roig, as seen through a trove of family photographs. Snow consolidates his mother's photo albums, presenting a total of 1,500 images. In a tenderly penned foreword, he explains the simple impetus for the project: "[The photographs] are so beautiful and so historic that I wish to share them with others."

Edited with introduction and text by Michael Snow. Afterword by Martha Langford.
