Email sent to Esopus subscribers requesting photographs for Jacoben’s project

Esopus 6 (Spring 2006)

Colter Jacobsen: Artist’s Project

By Colter Jacobsen

For this project, artist Colter Jacobsen invited our subscribers to submit photographs for a series of “memory drawings.” From the nearly 80 he received, he chose eight, and these double-drawings (one copied directly from its source, the others drawn from memory afterward) appear along with the photographs that inspired them.

Colter Jacobsen’s work has been in solo shows at spaces including the Jack Hanley Gallery in San Francisco, Corvi-Mora in London, and Tibor de Nagy in New York, as well as in many group shows. Jacobsen, who works as a caregiver and driver for the blind, also plays with the bands Coconut and Window Window. He is a graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute.
