by Thomas Mailaender


Photographs: Thomas Mailaender

Publisher: RVB BOOKS/MONTÉVIDÉO

78 pages

Pictures: 19

Year: October 2012

ISBN: 979-10-90306-11-0

Price: 75

Comments: Soft cover, singer binding, 21 x 29,7 cm, 19 Letters, Edition of 500 numbered copies

Gone Fishing tells the modern tale, through the form of a fictional correspondence, of a young man who prefers to go on holidays with his mates rather than bow to his new responsibilities as a father. As the letters progress, Thomas Mailaender paints the unflattering portrait of an adolescent Ulysses more inspired by beer, big-game fishing and table-tennis than by the joys of fatherhood. Each of the nineteen letters is illustrated by a portrait of the young father carrying out an appallingly banal exploit that is supposed to excuse his absence. These images are photomontages the artist has made from amateur photos he collected on the internet.
