Kanye West is picking up his pen, but it isn’t for bars. In an interview with his interior designer, Axel Vervoordt, the rapper revealed that he’ll be releasing a book exploring the human obsession with photographs.
Coined a philosophical work, Break the Simulation will tackle how photographs take people out of the now.
“I’ve got a concept about photographs, and I’m on the fence about photographs — about human beings being obsessed with photographs,” said West. “[B]ecause [photographs] takes you out of the now and transports you into the past or transports you into the future.”
“It can be used to document, but a lot of times it overtakes [people],” continued West. “People dwell too much in the memories.”
It will definitely be an interesting read.
