Shiny Objects showcases the work of New York based artist John LaMacchia. The book brings together a diverse group of photographic and sculptural work. LaMacchia, who is known for his C-prints of everyday individuals or objects distilled from their natural habitats, scrutinizes the fixated dynamics of contemporary routine as well as the fluidity between high and low cultures. Employing firsthand sarcasm as a utilitarian tool, the artist dismantles mediocre perceptions imposed by consumerist narrative and prevalent media.
