Description

Selected Standards is an artist book that combines title pages from sheet music found in a second hand store in Los Angeles with drawings and aerial photographs of LA. The represented songs are hits from jazz musicals from the 1940s and 1950s and they range in theme from zany and wistful, to melancholic and existential. In the spirit of improvisation and free association, closely linked with jazz, Macdonald paired each song with drawings made in his studio as well as with aerial photographs of Los Angeles.
