As result of the work carried out over 7 years, Bretxa Erretratuak 2010-2017, Subjective Atlas Vol.III is presented in the form of a print publication, sponsored by the Diputación Foral de Gipuzkoa - Koldo Mitxelena Kulturunea and Donostia 2016 added the generosity of the authors of the texts and the models, an album with images of 434 persons who I knew by name (not a random impersonal choice) That's why it tooks me 7 years of conversations to put together all my models. They are portrayed on a wall of the Bretxa market in San Sebastian accompanied by a photo of their favorite corner of the city. This Atlas with 874 images is a document of the residents/visitors of Donostia in the second decade of the new millennium. An edition that by its special character, will be almost exhausted the day of its presentation.
Inside the book
now, that the book is already i the press, I'm showing you some dedicated pages, for you to have a bite of it.......there are already four shorts essays more..
and this week 3 selected pages with portraits
With the idea of extending the edition of this book called Bretxa Erretratuak 2010-2017, Subjective Atlas Vol.III, Donostia 2017 I've launched this crowfunding to offer the possibility of enjoying this publication to all those people who were not in Donosti in those years, nor passed by the market of the Bretxa to be photographed, although equally feel attachment to the city or may have an interest in this project.
The book contains 600 pages, format album Landscape 24 x16 cm, hardcover, bound, paper Coral white 100gr, cover Geltex, imitation of fabric, rounded edges and borders tinted, like an ancient Atlas, 874 photos plus 9 essays of journalists, curators, art historians and artists:
Anne Faucheret curator of Kunsthalle Vienna, Arantxa Fdz Kape philologist, Begoña Ameztoy writer, Diana Sherlock curator, Glenn Ligon artist, Iñigo Lamarka ex-Ombudsmann, Izaskun Arandia filmmaker, Marta Arzak art historian and Wayne Baerwaldt curator, in three languages, Basque, Spanish, English.
The peculiarity of the publication is that in the day of its presentation practically becomes exhausted: 434 copies will be delivered to the models as reward for their kindness and the use of their image. The aprox. 200 remaining copies will be distributed by the institutions that have financed the publication of the book. A supplementary edition of 250 copies will allow access to the publication to the interested persons and for a price close to that of its production €35 + post and packaging (3€ Spain/ 10€ Intl) signed and embossing stamped.
