First published in 1992, Pictures From Home is Larry Sultan’s ode to his parents and the Reagan-era American dream. With an intensely personal mixture of photographs, home movies and text, it is now regarded as a classic in the history of photography.
Designed by Lewis Chaplin while working as Senior Designer at MACK, he worked on a complete redesign of the book, significantly increasing the page count, clarifying the multiplicity of textural and pictorial voices, emphasising the cinematic motion of the family’s home videos and re-scanning all existing content from original negatives. Sultan’s own photographs are given new emphasis, supplemented by previously unpublished images. The book accompanied a major retrospective at SFMOMA.
