New book shows uninterrupted series of photographs of North Korea's former leader looking at things
Without removing these photographs their primary function (to raise Kim Jong-Il to an iconic rank) this series forces a shift in the purpose of propaganda.
PARIS.- Kim Jong Il Looking at Things is one of the most followed, shared and imitated monothematic Tumblr in recent years. Uninterrupted series of photographs of North Korea’s Dear Leader looking at things, this series fascinates with its formal rigor and intensity.

Without removing these photographs their primary function (to raise Kim Jong-Il to an iconic rank) this series forces a shift in the purpose of propaganda. The icon changes to taxonomy, the viewer is being watched, and the meaning of this images beaks away.

Accompanied by an essay by Marco Bohr entitled Looking at Kim Jong-Il Looking at Things, the book reveals the springs of our fascination for these accumulated images on the Internet - these memes - analyzing how a series of photographs apparently innocent becomes viral and attractive.

By publishing Kim Jong Il Looking at Things in the collection FOLLOW ME, Collecting Images Today, Jean Boîte Éditions continues to highlight another art scene, which establishes the online collector as a creator, and the ephemeral in the perennial.

Jean Boîte Éditions is a publishing house founded by Mathieu Cénac and David Desrimais in September, 2011. Jean Boîte not only publishes books but also boîtes, real volumes designed to store and classify the books.

Each boîte is an insurance of a fine understanding for thematic or monographic subject. When the boîte is full of books that concludes the item.

Jean Boîte loves artists, poets, photographers, freethinkers, critics, and he is intended for bringing them together in a soft constraint: the boîte, a true laboratory of nowdays curiosity.
