In Almost Every Picture #10

Erik Kessels

Softcover | First edition | 148 pages

Published by KESSELSKRAMER, 2011.

Erik Kessels' 'In Almost Every Picture' is a series of books focusing on found amateur photographs with a sequenced narrative. This edition is the result of a strange detective story, initiated by photographer Michel Campeau. While clearing out his mother's house, Campeau discovered a strange image amongst her possessions: a piglet in a restaurant, being fed milk by a customer. Sometime later, he stumbled across another similar picture by accident. Intrigued Campeau decided to seek out more of these piglet mascots. His quest yielded over 200 images, the most striking of which are collected here. This is a book of obsessions; both Campeau's own and that of the original piglet snapper. All pictures are taken in the restaurant, Au Lutin Qui Bouffe in Montreal led by patron Mr McAbbie.
