Regina Anzenberger’s Favorite Book from 2019

Jamais je ne T'oublierai by Carolle Bénitah.   Published by L'Artiere.

Jamais je ne T'oublierai is the perfect Christmas gift, and has been my most striking discovery at Paris Photo this year. A book about family, about missing the loved ones and about the value they had for oneself. Found photographs from the fleamarket, partly painted with gold, become like everybody’s own family life of ancestors.

Thinking that Carolle Benitah is not the first one who worked with gold color to paint photographs this work is extraordinary succeeded in form and content, a beautiful object and perfectly produced. So far for me also the best works I have seen by the artist whose pictures and books I follow for more than 10 years
