Publisher's Description

The book is available in a trade edition, in a Swiss-bound hardcover, and a softbound, more affordable 'student edition', without a cover and enclosed in a printed manila envelope. There is also a poster, at 650x920mm, featuring Chirinos's photographs of surgical implements.

The Precipice is the summation of nearly two decades spent working as a biomedical photographer in Miami. Chirinos threads the needle between the sometimes delicate, often brutal world of surgical intervention. The book is separated into three main bodies: surgical photographs of living subjects; vibrant typologies of exquisitely photographed tools; and the journey to the afterlife. The Precipice draws back the curtain to a world which most of us never see, where human fragility and resilience coexist in an uneasy equilibrium.

Featuring essays by Michelle Otero and Eugenie Shinkle, and a poem by Claudia Isidron, The Precipice is simultaneously lyrical and bleak, a celebration of life and an unflinching observation of what follows.
