Night Gallery is delighted to announce the release of A Looking Glass of, a new book of photography by Cameron Crone, designed by Steve Kado and featuring an afterword by Nilo Goldfarb. This is Crone's second publication, following 2017's In the Garden.
The images in A Looking Glass of are pieces of a composite whole, fracturing body parts from two unique statues of Ronald Reagan in Southern California—one of the former president in a suit, made by Miriam Baker in 2011 and located in Newport Beach’s Civic Center Park; the other depicts Reagan in workwear, made as a commission for the city of Temecula by Chris Pardell and unveiled at the Ronald Reagan Sports Park in 2012.
In Crone’s words: "A Looking Glass of continues my interest in the relationship between photography and sculpture. The photographs are of two Ronald Reagan statues, one in Temecula and one in Newport Beach. I was interested in looking at how images and narratives of this political figure were made concrete and broadcast into the world.”
