"A PLAIN VIEW" is the most recent chapter in Jason Lee's ongoing photographic exploration of rural America that began more than a decade ago with large format Polaroid films on the back roads of California. This lavishly produced lay-flat softbound book is comprised of one hundred and eleven color images made throughout Texas over the course of twenty-five days between January and April of 2017 using expired Kodak 4 x 5 color films and a Graflex Speed Graphic view camera accompanied by a text by Will Gillham, the Head of Publications at The Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth. Says the author "Having relocated to Texas from California in 2015, I felt it important to explore my adopted state more extensively than I had in the past as a visiting photographer. "A PLAIN VIEW" is the result of that exploration". A brand new, pristine example of the 2017 first edition limited to one thousand, eight hundred copies with a 4 x 5 film-size laminated print adhered to the front cover SIGNED by Jason Lee in ink.
