I've seen Heidi Schwegler's work at the Portland Art Museum and I was excited to see that there was a catalog of her work. It was really interesting and thought provoking.

Interesting...opened my eyes to a different form of art.

Interesting concept. The photos are provoking and well taken. I agree with the artists fascination with the discarded and thrown away. Only complaint is the format is not great for seeing many of the photos... split in the middle. The editing and formatting is not very professional

This book had very interesting photos and concept, along with a couple extras. I really liked the photography style and the casting the photographer chose. It was unique and an interesting look into different perspectives of our surroundings. My favorite parts were the little notes in the corner of details of lost people, I found that intriguing and haven't seen it done before, I also really liked the self portraits. I'd definitely recommend checking it out.

This book 'Botched Execution: Selected Works by Heidi Schwegler 2004-2015' is very well done! It is beautiful and ugly, sad and joyous, funny and intriguing... I really enjoyed her art and the way she presents it all. If you like a stranger kind of art, this book is for you!
