SPBH Book Club Vol III. Cristina De Middel.

Photographs by Cristina De Middel 
Designed by 
Antonio de Luca
Edited by Bruno Ceschel  

Published by Self Publish, Be Happy, April 2013, London. Edition of 500 copies. (Also available in a numbered and signed special edition of 250. This limited edition includes an original print (7x5 inches)). 

[Purchase: L’Ascenseur Végétal]

"This new project challenges the archetype of street photography and the language and veracity of the photograph as a document. De Middel takes us out onto the shimmering streets of New York City, and playfully works with visual tropes to illuminate the surreal quality of space within the city. Embodying the notion of the American Dream and the tingling sensation of collective fascination with such an iconic place, the book is something of an enigma and hints at a multilayered story – through signifiers and visual clues, the viewer is invited to piece together the sum of its parts, as in a game or a puzzle".
