by Louise Levergneux
"Beside Me" is a continuation of an obsession the artist has with archiving and collecting. Just like in her past published works, this collection of images comprises teams; in this case teams of individuals and their canine friends met during the course of activities in dog training were selected. The approach is in keeping with the biographical theme that is the backbone of her work. The dual images presented within promote the artist's intent for how the team members should view the book. The full colour image is to be viewed by trichromatic vision (the individual), and the facing page with its blue tinted image is to be viewed by dichromatic vision (the canine friend). With this in mind, Levergneux demonstrates that team effort is also an appropriate way to view this book.
