We Already See So Much

We Already See So Much
upcoming artist's book, published by JRP|Ringier, April 2013

We Already See So Much, is a collection of 85 landscape drawings and sketches by Euan Macdonald, that were produced over a three year period in various parts of the world. In the small scenes, Macdonald reflects on the abstract and concrete forms of common landscape phenomena, providing a strange synthesis of familiarity and contingency, which in turn provokes an uncertainty of the ordinary.

On Macdonald's imagery, writer Ralph Rugoff says: "Macdonald quietly unsettles the viewers faith about what exactly is - or is not - happening in the picture he or she is looking at. ... These pockets of uncertainty are enhanced by Macdonald's deliberately style-less or impersonal approach to making images."

The books title comes from the last line of the short text- A Little Ramble (1914) written by the Swiss writer Robert Walser (1878 – 1956). A reprint of A Little Ramble (in the original German, and the English translation by Tom Whalen) is also included in the book as a detached insert.

Also, included throughout the book are reproductions of twenty two found Swiss postcards that were produced circa 1911-1913 - in proximity to the time and place where Walser wrote A Little Ramble. Each postcard image reflects a corresponding scene from Walser's text, producing a loose photographic narrative of the original story.
