Photography is nothing like a verbal or written language in most respects, but, like language, it is in common use. We all “speak” photography…
What can I ask photography to do?

Why Must the Mounted Messenger Be Mounted is the latest book by Lucas Blalock offering an expanded meditation on the artist’s twenty-year involvement with photography.
In it, Blalock charts the development of his photographic ideas as they run alongside a tangled web of accidents, influence, romance, anxiety, and work. It is a book about coming of age with a preoccupation alternately in full bloom and on its last legs. The volume also reproduces many of Blalock’s own photographs and artworks by his peers and influences.

Lucas Blalock is an American artist and author whose practice is defined by his interest in the process behind the images. His works are deliberately and evidently constructed with the help of Photoshop, but rather than using this tool to refine or perfect an image, Blalock emphasizes his edits. He lives and works in New York.
