‘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.

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? – Lucas Blalock (excerpt from the book)
