PÁJAROS – a photo book by GRACIELA ITURBIDE

PÁJAROS

“Photography is the only way to kill death”. Graciela Iturbide often mentions Jean Cocteau when she talks about her way of taking pictures, almost like it were an excuse to see the world and better know what’s around her. Iturbide’s black & whites are always dense and well defined, they talk about true life, expectations and the quest for freedom. It makes no wonder that “once somebody told me that birds are often in my pictures, and since then I decided birds would have been a book”.

“I’m fascinated by flying birds’ mystic and loneliness”.

Pájaros, birds in Spanish, is a beautiful and elegant book that takes the viewer away from the solid ground. High into the white sky and then, suddenly, down to the wall stained by roosters’ blood.
