Publisher's Description

The World's First Photobook Was Blue is not only a book intended to show the work of Albarrán Cabrera (the photographic duo of Anna Cabrera and  Angel Albarrán), but also a book intended to explain their artistic approach. This is a book with no real beginning or end ...

The title is a nod to Anna Atkins, the spiral binding a nod to Brassaï, and the book itself a tribute to the deceptively simple but truly complex medium that is photography.

 

In the words of the artists:

“Photography is not the thing. It is the thing that gets us to the thing.
Atkins used photography to illustrate nature and its structure. In a similar way, we use photography to illustrate reality and its structure. The possibility of having a tool to investigate reality is what first drew us to photography. We discovered that by using this medium we can nurture our interest and have a better understanding not only of perceived reality, but of the ‘structure of reality’, ‘the why of things’. Photography is, for us, the perfect philosophical tool to learn more about the universe as a logical and architectural conception: the recognition of an order among individual pieces in which each piece is also illuminated by the arrangement of the whole. ” Albarrán Cabrera
