The publication of Joe coincided with Pulitzer Arts Foundation’s exhibition Hiroshi Sugimoto: Photographs of Joe (2006), for which the photographer turned his attention to Richard Serra’s Joe, a torqued spiral sculpture that was commissioned for the Pulitzer’s courtyard. To photograph the work, Sugimoto used a technique involving areas of extremely soft light and blurred darkness. Forty of the photographs from this series are included in the book. In addition, the novelist Jonathan Safran Foer (Everything is Illuminated and Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close) was commissioned to contribute a narrative text—exclusive to this book—that relates to both the sculpture and the photographs while neither describing nor defining them. This oversize hardcover book measures 12″ x 14 ¾”.
