Copyright 2014 Guilherme Gerais

Photographer: Guilherme Gerais (born & resides Londrina, Brazil)

Illustrations: Arthur Durate

Publisher: Self-published, Avalanche

Text: English & Portuguese

Hardcover book with sewn binding and an integral stiff cover book that is saddle stich & glued inside back cover, with poster, four-color lithography, printed in Brazil (Midiograf)

Photobook designer: Guilherme Gerais

Notes: The book is an enigma, from start to finish. The black and white photographs are very ambiguous, hinting at a landscape that might be found on Earth, or perhaps elsewhere, providing many options to construct a narrative. At times it seems the book is bordering on too many options as to confound the reader.  I felt a push-pull tension; as the landscape and accompanying illustrations was a mix of the familiar yet still foreign and leaving me unbalanced. As such this is a bold body of work, very complex and layered.

Cheers!
