foto's van de Amerikaanse ‘page curler’ Cara Barer.Zij is in de eerste plaats fotografe,maar wat zij fotografeert:boeken met omgekruld bladen
ziehier wat ik elders vond:
In Barer’s hands, the books are still recognizably books but warped, torn, disbound, dyed and/or sculpted until they are suggestive of quite different, often organic forms. An over-bloomed flower … butterfly wings … snowflake crystals.
Her Dimensions and Of Words, Paper, and Shapes series are are among the finest examples of biblio-photography.
How does she find her subjects:
Barer realized that she owned many books that were "no longer of use to me, or for that matter, anyone else. Would I ever need "Windows 95?" she says.
"As I begin the process, I first consider the contents of each volume." Then
the books go into the "bathtub for a few hours" and emerge with "a new shape and purpose. She "uses everything from hair rollers to Velcro to manipulate them into the desired forms."
