#ART: “EVERYTHING THAT I WISH I COULD BE” BY KENT ROGOWSKI
“Everything that I wish I could be” is the title of a series of book collages made by Kent Rogowski. He used the titles of self-help books to create larger narratives, which become portraits of emotions, people and events in life. Check out the rest of the series after the jump:
"There is a Rainbow"
"Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow"
"You Are Special"
"Everything that I wish I could be is an exploration of language, emotions and the desire to change and improve one’s self. There is a self-help book for almost every moment and problem in life; from relationship advice to dealing with the inevitability of death. Each large format photograph, pictures an arrangement of title pages and spines, from up to 100 self-help books that are based around a central theme. Together, the titles create larger narratives, which become portraits of emotions, people and events in life." - Kent Rogowski
