Amanda Marsalis: A Catalogue of Constant Motion

A Catalogue of Constant Motion is a 232-page tome collecting the extensive series of Polaroids that Amanda Marsalis shot over the period of eight years. Amanda Marsalis is a LA-based photographer and director whose work captures the subtle intimacy of everyday life. This book catalogues Amanda’s numerous shots of sunsets, palm trees, hotels, exquisite meals, enviable clothes, airports and men. The photographs gathered in this volume show the depth of her obsessions in collecting the same subjects, experiences and memories over long periods of time with the same meticulous, systematic approach.

The visual language of these images – interpreted with a 4-colour Risograph print – makes them particularly special and vulnerable, as they show Amanda’s continuous desire to expose the recurrent themes of her life both in subject and form. Published by Venice-based Automatic Books publishing house, A Catalogue of Constant Motion is both about preserving the most personal and intimate moments, as well as about offering them for public consumption through the very real and material form of the Risograph-printed book.
