The brainchild of renowned Dutch art director Erik Kessels, the series In Almost Every Picturehas become a cult classic of vernacular photography, with several volumes in the series no longer available. Each installment features an idiosyncratic and anonymously-authored collection of found images. The first volume gathered a dozen years of vacation photographs taken by a husband of his wife, which were bought at a flea market in Spain. Other images range from a series of a parked taxi portrayed amid alpine settings, to a series dedicated to one family's photogenic Dalmatian. This limited-edition set, which collects all five volumes, is presented in a handmade grey felt slipcase and includes a DVD featuring a Super-8 film of Josephina Aparicio Iglesias, the star of volume 1. Each set is signed and numbered by Erik Kessels.
