‘Everything That I Wish I Could Be’ Book Collages Explore Emotions, People

‘Everything That I Wish I Could Be’ is a series of book collages by Brooklyn, New York-based artist/photographer Kent Rogowski.

In an exploration of language, emotions and the desire to change and improve one’s self—he uses titles of self-help books to create larger narratives, which become portraits of emotions, people and events in life.

“There is a self-help book for almost every moment and problem in life; from relationship advice to dealing with the inevitability of death,” he writes about his series.

“I am interested in the larger questions of how we communicate and deal with moments of pain and change and the commonalities of those experiences, as well as, the patterns and contradictions that are often inherent in language, advice and differing philosophies.”
