Theory of Wants by Ohad Maiman

This is the book I brought to book share last week. The artist mixes photography with words to take the reader on a journey. The artist studies philosophy and Fine Art in college which helped him combine the two beautifully in this book. I highly recommend everyone who didn't get a chance to read the whole thing to check it out in the library. This book almost seems like the artist's own journal, it feels very intimate. It is very relatable, I think to everyone. It inspired be greatly.
Artist Statement : "Ohad Maiman is a New York-based philosopher and artist who traveled the far East and South America extensively after serving three years in the Special Forces. This artist's book collects his compelling, immediate photographs of people around the world with his own philosophical statements and questions."
