lower case a & d appropriation and deconstruction

I think my flash adds to this picture, which I've taken of a photo printed in one of my dad's old advertising books.

It's funny, because all that academic talk of representations, appropriation and simulacras aside, I can definitely understand Richard Prince's fascination with the "rephotograph".

It's so rich somehow. Makes the photograph into a three-dimensional object or something. And I think it's real pretty that you can see the pixels and the texture of the paper spelled out like that. And the way the flash bounces off the page.
