Hyparxic Dialogues


Forthcoming in Autumn 2024

This book emerged out of a sequence of dialogues exploring the relationship between the observer and the observed. When we look at an image, a whole series of thoughts and emotions are provoked; social, psychological, and spiritual. Through a set of iconic photos by the artist and photographer Pablo Mandel, the viewer is invited to enter into the pictures and explore where they take them. To facilitate this journey, we match photos with words, which are aimed at opening up new insights and levels of perception. This is an interactive book which deepens our interpretation of the world that surrounds us’.
