Quote of Note | Todd Eberle

Todd Eberle’s photograph of the bedroom aboard Air Force One juxtaposed with one of his grandparents’ guest bedroom in Houston, Texas. “They are both rooms with twin beds and murals,” he says.

“The inspiration for the pairings came from a Walker Evans book, First and Last, in which all the images he made had something in common. It allowed me absolute freedom to mix subjects. I wanted to have my first book represent what I do. I think it’s hard to come up with a point of view when making a book and the pairings solved many things for me.”
