Herbert List’s Surreal And Gruesome Photographs From The Mid 20th Century

Long before the magic of Photoshop and its ability to manipulate came the work of Herbert List, a surrealist photographer working from the mid-1930’s through the 1960’s. His black and white images feature fake scientific models with their skin cut away and their guts partially exposed. This isn’t a particularly unusual sight- they are things you’d see in a classroom or museum – and show historical ways of practicing medicine. But, it’s how he frames the images that gives them an unnerving feel. Compositions are tightly cropped and provide us little context for what’s around them; it creates an air of mystery.

Little Humans goes on sale on October 7th, which is ONE WEEK from today. Little Humans is also known colloquially as “The HONY Kids’ Book,” and “The HONY Book For Adults Who Prefer Kids’ Books.” All the best kid portraits from the last few years are in there, along with— if you’ll allow me to quote the marketing department — “a heartwarming ode to little humans everywhere.” Little Humans is less than $10 online, and should be shipping any day now from online retailers. 



For everyone who lives around NYC, or plans to be in New York during October, a few public events which have been scheduled locally around the book launch:

I’m going to be giving a speech on October 7th at the 92nd St. Y, which is officially billed as a “Launch Event for Little Humans,” but seeing that I have an hour to talk, will most likely take the form of a general discussion about the history and process behind HONY. I enjoy telling HONY’s history and demonstrating the work, so we’ll have fun. This event is ticketed— it’s $40 I think, which is a bit rich, but 100% of the money goes to support the Y’s community programs. (And some of the ticket price can be put toward a purchase of Little Humans.) Unfortunately I just learned that most of the tickets were sold before I could make the announcement, and there are only about 300 left. Those tickets are available here:

A free, more ‘easily attendable’ event will be the book signing at Union Square Barnes and Noble on October 11th, which begins at 2 PM. This event was a lot of fun last year with the launch of the adult book. Since this is a children’s book, we’ll keep it fun and playful. We scheduled it on the weekend so you can bring the kids and dogs, though I’m not sure dogs are allowed in the bookstore, so you may want to disguise them as kids. For those of you with tickets to Comic Con, I will also be speaking there at on October 12th at 3:15 PM. Then October 18th, at 4:00 PM, I’ll be doing a talk/signing at Powerhouse Arena in Brooklyn. Last year, the final Powerhouse signing was the most unhurried and intimate event, though this year it might not be because I just said it would be. We also scheduled that signing during the weekend, because it would be awesome to have little humans at the Little Humans book signing.

Whew! That post took two cups of coffee.
