Joyan Saunders: Forest City Gallery

by Goldie Rans

Vanguard, Summer 1981, p. 51

Focussing on two serial works by Joyan Saunders Phone and Superstratum, this article explores the relationship between photography and language and the social structures in Saunders' work. Rans notes Saunders' slick aesthetic and the interplay between textual and visual narratives, and the viewer. In both works, Saunders attempts to undercut the notion that photography expresses a kind of ultimate "truth".
