JAMES R. HUGUNIN

EXCERPTS FROM

RE-TREADS

(1974)








These excerpts from my 1974 self-published artist book titled Re: Treads (1974) were a part of an ongoing project where I tasked myself to create one conceptual piece each month concerning the general concept of knowing.” Most of the pieces were scripto-visual, photo-language works. But some, like “Sucrose (1974)” had no photo attached. These pieces I referred to as Phenomenological Artworks.”
J.R. Hugunin, 2017

James R. Hugunin teaches the History of Photography and Contemporary Theory at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In 1983 he won the first Reva and David Logan Award for Distinguished New Writing in Photography. He is the author of A Survey of the Representation of Prisoners in the United States: Discipline and Photograph, The Prison Experience (1999), Writing Pictures, Case Studies in Photographic Criticism, 1983 - 2012 (2013), New Art Examiner Reviews: 1986-93, and Afterimage: Critical Essays on Photography from the Journal Afterimage, 1977-88, all collections of his critical writings. He has also written several novels: Something is Crook in Middlebrook (2012), Elder Physics, The Wrong of Time: Stories from an Elder Home (2013), and Case-X (taking us inside the mind of an academic undergoing treatment for salivary gland cancer). His current novel-in-progress, Finding Mememo, plays with the genres of detective and sci-fi writing (forthcoming in 2017).
