The Disappearance of Michelle DuBois is a print-on-demand Limited-Edition artist’s book. It is the fourth volume in a four-volume set by the artist Zoe Crosher. This volume is part of Aperture Ideas: Writers and Artists on Photography, a series devoted to the finest critical and creative minds exploring key concepts in photography, including new technologies of production and dissemination.

Identical in structure, each volume offers an alternate perspective on the archive of Michelle duBois, an enigmatic collection of images bequeathed to the artist by the subject and compiler. In each subsequent volume, Crosher configures a new set of identities and meanings for this ephemeral archive of photographic detritus through a selection of unique sets of images, reinterpretations of photos seen in previous volumes, as well as new texts.

Zoe Crosher’s The Disappearance of Michelle DuBois is a reconsidered archive culled from crates, boxes and albums consisting of endless flirtatious smiles, tourist shots, cheesecake mementos and suggestive poses in every film type and size. Volumes one through four will be released sequentially every few months and is limited to ten copies per volume. Each book includes a unique to the volume 8 × 10-inch signed and numbered print.
