This second and expanded edition of Jessica Williams’ (US/NO) “Oslofjord” is a close collaboration between the artist and Issue Press. Images have been both reworked and added on the five year anniversary of the original publication. In 2016 the artist started seeing and collecting a very curious type of beach plastic on the islands off the inner Oslofjord in Norway. This book is her collection: an oddly aesthetic and terrifying testament to the carelessness of humans and the relentless force which is nature.
“Oslofjord bears witness to an intrusion of the artificial into the organic… Every image is saturated with a weird, phantasmagorical intensity. Williams’ book depicts a slow-moving violence that affects the very categories by which we make sense of things.”
