FOREST HILLS - BILL SULLIVAN FOREST HILLS - BILL SULLIVAN


Sun Books and Editions, 2014 / First Edition of 500 copies / 145 pages / 25 x 17 cm

From the publisher: Forest Hills is a book that follows the 20th century history of tennis and art, confusing and conflating their two stories in order to create a new kind of history. Once the center of tennis in America Forest Hills is now an almost forgotten world, a lost civilization of the sport. Bill Sullivan's book uses photography and image making to tell the story of it's rise and fall paralleling it's history with that of art and design. The book follows the history of the site and the stadium as it evolved through the various changes to its surfaces and trappings to its ultimate end. Functioning as an ahistorical/historical document, Forest Hills is a story about a real place as well as a long meditation on how this place and it's elements may have been viewed by people in the past over time.
