You Are Eternity, You Are the Mirror by Marcy Palmer. Published by Yoffy Press.
You Are Eternity, You Are The Mirror, Marcy Palmer's gilded flower series — and now photobook — is a shimmering, temporary bright light amidst the pain, uncertainty, and suffering in the world. Her work invigorates the often hard-to-reimagine botanical photography genre while gesturing to photo-historical forbearers like Anna Adkins. What’s most impressive is how Yoffy Press conveys the materiality of Palmer’s photographic prints (gold velum, etc) from the pages of a photobook. Using overlays and other tactile techniques, they maintain the hold-in-your-hands intimacy that makes Palmer's work so special.
