Lori Vrba – The Moth Wing Diaries


Copyright 2015 Lori Vrba

Photographer: Lori Vrba (born Texas, resides North Carolina (USA))

Publisher: Daylight Books

Essay: Del Zogg

Text: English

Hardcover book, sewn binding, Index of Plates, four-color lithography, printed & bound in China

Photobook designer: Ursula Damm

Notes: A delightful book filled with dreamlike black & white toned photographs that investigate memory and identify. (Extracted from the publisher); Vrba’s meticulously composed photographs are packed with symbolism drawn from art, folklore, mythology and biblical references. He subjects are actors performing parts in a series of dreamlike vignettes that tell universal stories of love, loss and the passage of time, and examine the simultaneous joy and pain of motherhood, love and being an artist. very nice.

Cheers, Doug
