In almost every picture 10
Collected by Michel Campeau. Edited and designed by Erik Kessels.
This edition is the result of a strange detective story, initiated by photographer Michel Campeau.
While clearing out his mother's house, Campeau discovered a strange image amongst her possessions: a piglet in a restaurant, being fed milk by a customer. Some time later, he stumbled across another, similar picture by accident. Intrigued, Campeau decided to seek out more of these piglet mascots. His quest yielded over 200 images, the most striking of which are collected here.
This is a book of obsessions; both Campeau's own and that of the original piglet snapper, who worked for thirty five years on the project, producing thousands of shots (now mostly destroyed).
