I Thought You Knew Where All of the Elephants Lie Down.
Photographs by André Princípe.
Pierre von Kleist Editions, 2010. 48 pp., Color illustrations throughout, 9¼x13½".
In his second book designed as a classical music score, Príncipe continues his exploration of photography as a way of knowing reality.
The book has a strong narrative feeling, with two distinctive parts; a very precise sequence of images of girls and animals is followed by a hazy, dreamlike worldview.
With its Leonard Cohen line title, I thought you knew where all of the elephants lie down is an existentialist travelogue that defies the idea that there are pots of gold at the end of the rainbow.
