photography & artist books with photography – recent work and work-in-progress

For an upcoming artist book, I have been taking B&W photographs of bridges and stairways that are part of my neighborhood. Why bridges and stairways: because I often abstract from such structures the concept of transposing oneself from one reality to another – a commonplace in an immigrant’s life.

Sculpted page by page, this book embodies a beam. Its content speaks of ways to cope with a world in which the elements of balance that matters most are intangible: situations with as much surface tension as a soap bubble; variations of minds throughout seasonal fluctuations of daylight; the percentage of madness within genius and vice-verse. It uses hand-set type, photographs and drawings to illustrate the effort of holding under one’s fingertips the elusive body of human relations.
