"Guardando una fotografia, l'osservatore pensa comunque alla propria vita, ai propri ricordi. Ogni interpretazione è unica."

‐ Jason Fulford

JASON FULFORD (1973) is a photographer, co-founder of J&L Books, and a Guggenheim Fellow.

He is a frequent lecturer at universities, and has led workshops across the United States, in Japan, Italy, Poland, Latvia, Britain, Canada, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Germany, Spain  and Slovenia.

His monographs include Sunbird (Bird Entertainment, 2000), Crushed (J&L Books, 2003), Raising Frogs for $$$ (The Ice Plant, 2006), The Mushroom Collector (The Soon Institute, 2010 and 2014), Hotel Oracle (The Soon Institute, 2013), Contains: 3 Books (The Soon Institute, 2016), The Medium is a Mess (Studio Blanco, 2018), Clayton’s Ascent (TBW, 2018) and Picture Summer on Kodak Film (MACK, 2020).

He is co-author with Tamara Shopsin of This Equals That (Aperture, 2014), Find Colors (Phaidon and Whitney Museum, 2018), A Pile of Leaves (Phaidon and Whitney Museum, 2019), and Offline Activities (The Ice Plant, 2020). Together with Gregory Halpern he co-edited The Photographer’s Playbook (Aperture, 2014).

In 2021 he published, for Aperture, “Photo No-Nos: Meditation on What Not to Photograph,” a book edited by the artist himself, which presents stories and anecdotes about the greatest and most talented photographers. It stands not as a guide but as a series of reflections on how to approach photography and how to make more sophisticated work.

He has published “The Heart is a Sandwich” (Mack, 2023), a funny, absurd and introspective book that collects within it twelve stories, the result of a decade of encounters with Italy. With images that are deceptive and simple but full of compositional intelligence he brings out metaphors and new meanings to the images themselves, to lead the viewer to seek multiple readings.

Fulford’s photographs have been described as open metaphors. As an editor and an author, a focus of his work has been on the subject of how meaning is generated through association.
