Associate Professor of Art Ron Jude will launch a new book entitled “Nausea”
in London on May 19th. He will be signing books in the bookshop at The
Photographers’ Gallery at 5:00 pm, followed by a conversation with curator
and writer David Chandler at 6:30 pm. “Nausea” is Jude’s third book with
London-based publisher MACK.
“Nausea”—taken from the title of Sartre’s 1938 existential novel—is a
body of photographs that registers the interiors of public schools in Baton
Rouge, Louisiana and Atlanta, Georgia. Departing from mere documentation,
however, Ron Jude lures us into peering through windows, doorways and
crevices of walls into empty classrooms and corridors, as we become
increasingly conscious of the perils of our own gaze.
David Chandler is a writer, editor and curator in the fields of contemporary
photography, photographic history and the visual arts and is currently
Professor of Photography at the School of Art, Design and Architecture,
Plymouth University. He was curator at The Photographers’ Gallery from 1988
