Guy Tillim – Roma, Citta di Mezzo

Posted in Bøger, Fotografer, Land / Sydafrika by fotografiskskole on 10. juni 2010

Vi låner lige et par afbildninger fra Douglas Stockdales blog The PhotoBook. Han er nemlig ret begejstret for Guy Tillims nyeste bogprojekt Roma, Citta di Mezzo, udgivet af det italienske forlag Edizioni Punctum.

Han skriver bl.a. om bogen:

Tillman’s photographs are captured from a walking perspective of the photographer-flaneur, framing his compositions at eye level. The view-point is of someone who is navigating the side streets, with occasional glimpses of antiquity, ancient structures, slow restorations, some stilled in mid-rebuilding, while the modern city grows and pushes on its boundaries.

og

Tillim provides a somber narrative through the city, observing what is; perhaps the framing is purposefully attempting to include the un-beautiful, the normal and plain, non-romantic version of what is considered one of the more romantic European cities. These are photographs of experiences, normally considered un-worthy of an extended gaze, instead of moving on in search of the more aesthetic pleasing photographic viewpoint.

Det lidt specielle ved bogen er, at den er designet efter et harmonika-princip, som tillader et andet flow end den traditionelle bog, samtidig med at billederne, selv om de strækker sig over 2 sideopslag, let lader sig betragte i opslået position.
