Descripción

City of Salt Aperture Hard Bound in Slip Case Panoramic photographs of fantastical landscapes make a bizarre Baedeker to alternative realities in City of Salt, by Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick. The second volume, after Scotlandfuturebog, in an intended trilogy of such otherworldly guides juxtaposes those scenes with similarly inspired texts: Sufi tales, the writings of fabulist Italo Calvino, and parables by the artists themselves. The strange deserts, marshes, sandy shores, villages, and fields are often traversed by wandering figures, frequently in peril or precariously alone. Kahn and Selesnick's process combines sculptural and photographic media. The artists first construct the intricately detailed worlds in three-dimensional miniatures and dioramas, then digitally photograph the scene and populate it with characters in allegorical, though intriguingly puzzling, tableaux. Essays by Erez Lieberman and Sarah Falkner. Hardcover, 17.25 x 8.75 in./96 pgs / 40 color. N° de ref. de la librería 2071

Review:

"Here is a splendid volume from the Terry Gillam school of fictional photography... The book comes in a sturdy slipcase and features complex landscapes, painstakingly created, and digitally peopled by actors playing out scenes which conjure up a mystical Middle Eastern civilisation. Enigmatic, but beautiful." --Ag Magazine

"This is a beautifully structured text with an imaginative use of words and photography. This wondrous book of tales is a complex work of art that will be read throughout our generation." --Focus: Fine Art Photography Magazine

"City of Salt... creates and documents alternate realities in miniature, accompanied by narratives inspired by Sufi tales, Italo Calvino and more." -- Michelle Wildgen --Publishers Weekly
