Awesome to see a detailed report from José Carlos Robles of the Photobook Club Alicante about the box of dummies event held recently. A section of the piece is shown below along with several images but for the full article, head here.
The box didn’t leave anyone indifferent. As usual, we met at the MACA’S (Museum of Modern Art) llibrary were we could enjoy the amazing work of remarkable artists. We started a brief summary of the works and subsequently we gave a brief time for everyone to carefully observe them.
With great astonishment and why not certain dose of criticism, I must say, the books were passed from hand to hand until with great emotion. After the meeting we all gathered at the “October Press Café” to continue the chat , a place highly recommended for further discussions photographically for obsessive minds like we are.
I must say that it could be risky to highlight the most admired books. However, we can not ignore GALAND FLORENCE’S book entitled “ARBRE. PIERRE. NUAGE “, a gorgeous specimen. We also want to highlight the work of DAVID MCBRIDE entitled “THE ANOMALIES”. The author reveals that the story, told in a way of abstraction key, speaks about the time he spent caring for his father, RICHARD BERNARD MCBRIDE. The period of time during which he was diagnosed with Alzheimer, the care he gave hime, his memory loss, mood swings, problems with language and inability of reasoning until his death, constitute a marvellous tribute to his father. We are sure he will have been proud of his son.WONDERFUL!
