Owner of This World is a book of photographs made by Shawn Records during the four months that his son, Max Records, spent working as an actor on the set of Where the Wild Things Are, Spike Jonze's film adaptation of the Maurice Sendak classic. Max was nine-years old at the time, and neither he nor his family had been involved in the film industry before. Records, the elder, is convinced that this book will disappoint anyone looking for insight into the film or the filmmakers and offers it as a manifestation of his own anxieties; a collection of fears and reassurances, upon letting his son out into a world that is beyond his control.
