This is the second in a series of delightfully quirky photobooks of images made by Frederic Lezmi with his iPhone. It’s not really a book; it’s more like a box of beautifully printed lithographs on heavy paper — so you can take them out one by one to appreciate them (even frame them), shuffle the order, or arrange them as a grid on your wall… They are self-published in a signed limited edition of 100.
I like the fact that they are also ephemeral bits of street art, symbols of anarchy tempered with the beauty of collage, captured on the go with a camera phone, and filtered through a computer application that attempts to replicate the look of Polaroids. They also serve as sociological specimens from the streets of the youngest democracy in Europe.
