Redlands

Philip Brookman is a curator, photographer, filmmaker, and writer. He is consulting curator in the department of photographs at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.

Redlands weaves together an intimate sequence of words and pictures in this cinematic novel by Brookman, set in Mexico, California, and New York City during the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. By juxtaposing the oppositional strategies of fiction and documentary practice to conjure a fabricated narrative, Redlands questions the veracity of logical observation and embraces the poetry of the real world.
