Prince & Sebastian 

Innen. 2015. First Edition. Softcover. 24 Pages. Limited Edition of 200. Out of print. Book : VG+.

Rare. Filmmaker Zach Sebastian and art provocateur Richard Prince have teamed up in a collision of motorcycles. With images reappropriated from an unreleased film that Sebastian made about a community of Americans in Dayton Ill (south of Chicago) who believe that Japanese people are buying up their country and want to fight back. “I’d been sitting on these photos I took, they came from a documentary I shot about a small rural community that believes the ‘Japs’ are buying America. So to show them who's boss they organize a huge party where they set fire and destroy a large amount of Japanese cars and motorcycle. According to Zach Sebastian, "when I took the photos I was thinking about my own views of America. The fantasy, the clichés and the true character and spirit of the place. Regardless of what you think or feel about these images or people, whether it’s ironic, stupid, scary, cliché, sexy, nostalgic, crazy, whatever, just know they’re out there fighting the system the only way they know how”. Prince liked the idea of recycled imagery and found memories and curated the pictures that Sebastian should use. He remembers, “Zach sent me these weird shaky prints, rambling about WWF, monster trucks and looking at dirty magazines as a boy. I thought our work would work together, so why not?”.
