Erik Kessels has been working on his In Almost Every Picture series for a good old while now (he’s now on #12). It’s a series that sees his role as a curator pushed to the extreme, sampling images from a multitude of found sources and bringing them together into individual monographs. His aim is to take everyday characters going about their business and place them on a pedestal for all to see. Previous editions have focussed on a Dutch woman who shoots fairground stalls, a bunny carrying objects on its head and Fred and Valerie, a husband and wife duo obsessed with getting their expensive clothes wet in public and documenting the results.
It goes without saying that the content of this project is varied, and the latest edition is yet another departure into the unknown, comprised of a vast number of images of Larbi Laaraichi, a Moroccan wedding filmmaker who likes to capture himself at every wedding he shoots. Kessels has ordered the photos of Larbi chronologically allowing us to see the progression of his career, and also the effects of time on his face. It’s a fascinating portrait of a man who’s no different to the rest of us, plucked out of obscurity by another man who definitely is.
