Entre Os Olhos, O Deserto.

Between the Eyes, the Desert.

Photographs by Miguel Rio Branco. Text by David Levi Strauss.
Cosac & Naify Editions, Sao Paolo, In English and, 2003. In Brazil. Unpaged, 150+ color illustrations, 5¾x5¾".

Though measuring just under six inches square, this ambitiously conceived project is the photo-book version of a power bar—thick, rich, at times hard to chew, but re-energizing nonetheless. There is no opening text whatsoever. One is thrown immediately into Rio Branco's visual world, the first scenes of which are a vast desert. But from here the viewer is led haphazardly through a free-association of dream-like imagery. Every other page is a fold-out, each time producing a triptych of full-bleed photographs. A gathering of living artifacts and clues seems to be taking place, yet, quite intentionally it seems, no over-arching picture emerges. This is a questioning process, as Strauss' poetic text, with overt references to Plato's cave, makes clear. The accompanying DVD sets the entire book in motion.
