Publisher's Description
Dialogue allows us to discover what makes us similar, but also what sets us apart. It is the supreme challenge of our capacity to accept, where tension and contradictions, agreements and differences are resolved in a double gaze, in a common quest, begins writer Sandra Lorenzano in her introduction to Correspondence, which presents a volley of images e-mailed between Buenos Aires-based Marcelo Brodsky and Mexico City-based Pablo Ortiz Monasterio. Throughout the project, each photographer responded to the other's last image, poetically, playfully and intuitively combining the chance of a ready-made with the complexity of photographic memory. This volume's bold design reflects the artists' process: the spreads include one image by each artist, with the last image from the previous spread repeated on the first page of the next spread. Seeing each image twice creates an uncanny and suggestive vibe, replicating the instantaneous method in which the photographers worked and causing the viewer to draw unconscious connections.
