White Road
27 March 2016

White Road  (Steidl Verlag, 2012) is a two-volume book, one of images, the other of text, that together form an inquiry into 10 years of travel and living in Central Asia. The work was exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington DC in 2012 and 2013. Curator Russell Lord of the New Orleans Museum of Art says: “The publication’s two volumes, beautifully produced, echo each other in text and image. The pictures function like little parts of speech, a noun here, a verb there, that collectively form a poetic interrogation of life in this part of the world. Sigal’s non-fiction text is comprised of fragments, much like his photographs, that form a kind of call-and-response to the images. Coordinated by Paul Roth, this book and exhibition explore the role that photographic sequencing plays in the creation of narrative forms.”
