Almost There by Aleix Plademunt, published by MACK is out now!
"Almost There is a book work which presents a challenging constellation of images; vast Canadian terrains precede archeological images of Neanderthal remains, which settle between found objects. Landscapes and skyscapes partner animals and interiors, all culminating in an overriding sense of distance and displacement.Almost There is a constant return journey, an exploration of what is closest and what is furthest away. Ultimately Plademunt communicates his frustration, of never being close enough and never being far enough away, just managing to be almost there.”
You can feel an image – you don’t necessarily have to see it. It’s like meditation, or when you wake up after sleeping on the beach, in the middle of the afternoon, and through the haze the light blasts that sense of an awakening. I find a sense of joy there, in my pictures. (via Over the Brooklyn Bridge | Mark Borthwick and Maria Cornejo) Photo: Mark C. O’Flaherty
