Cyprien Gaillard: Geographical Analogies
by Florence Derieux
Publisher's Description
Described as a 'world atlas against disappearance,' this artist's book from Cyprien Gaillard (born 1980) presents 900 Polaroid photos, arranged into diamond-shaped grids, of architectural dilapidation, from ancient times to the present. Approaching the world as an archeological dig, Gaillard unites form with content by using an analogously outmoded instrument-the Polaroid-to depict these ruined or about-to-be ruined buildings.
