Whatever the title says, this book’s twenty-seven photographs show twenty-nine cakes. Another entry in the long tradition stemming from Ed Ruscha’s Twentysix Gasoline Stations, Pogačar’s book assembles found photographs, mostly of children’s birthday parties. In many photos, children pose proudly by their cakes or blow out candles. In sequencing these ordinary photographs, Twenty-Eight Cakes draws attention to patterns and details.
