Lynn Valley 4

The 4th installment of the Lynn Valley artist book series features an untitled sequence of 24 photographs by Annette Kelm.

Using a detailed studio-shot format, reminiscent of advertising photography, the book features six versions of the same hat (with yellow, purple, red, beige, blue and black seams, respectively) that the artist bought in the Chinatown neighborhoodof Manhattan, New York.

Manufactured in China for the US market these hats are a strange cultural hybrid. Their design features an unusual combination of a common baseball cap and straw hat in an odd grafting of idioms that collide to create a global consumer item.
