Federico Barbon – Alessandro Calabrese — The Long Thing
with Jonathan Hares, Guy Meldem
I had the opportunity to collaborate with the Italian artist Alessandro Calabrese on a monograph of his latest work. In this work the artist used a flatbed scanner to create all the works that are part of this project. Initially I was faced with this gap between photographic production and manual photographic composition. I was spontaneously inspired to take over the artist's production codes to design the book. In fact the entire book is composed through the use a scanner by hand.
