Unexpected Book on the Unexpected Photo Essay on Cortazar

All the items have finally arrived and the Unexpected Book will be finalized and distributed in a couple of weeks. You can still get a copy. There are only 100 units, each containing a different combination of images.

The book is part of a larger project I worked on for the past year, the “Unexpected Photo Essay on Cortázar, his readers and Paris”, a series of portraits, taken in Paris, of friends and readers of Argentine writer Julio Cortázar.

Unexpected Book on the Unexpected Photo Essay on Cortazar

 

The Photo book in a few words:

This is not your ordinary photo book. Following the title of the project it is an Unexpected Book, a publication that converts the photos into objects with which the reader has to interact to see the images.

 

It consists of:

– Seven numbered envelopes and one stone are inside a book shaped cardboard box.

– The envelopes represent the hopscotch’s squares.

– Each envelope conceals a photo.

– The reader has to display them in a hopscotch format and then throw the stone to play and unveil the stories hidden within each envelope.

What is the “Unexpected Photo Essay on Cortázar”?

The story is a series of portraits, taken in Paris, of friends and readers of Argentine writer Julio Cortázar.

Each of the 70 participants had to choose a passage of the book Hopscotch that mentions a place in Paris. I then took a portrait of them in the chosen site, and asked them to briefly explain why they preferred it over others.
