Corps/Bodies Publication

Corps/Bodies is a reimagination of a 16-page section of the 2009 book “La Photographie N’est Pas L’Art”, which highlights the collection of surrealist photography of Sylvio Perlstein. The original publication separated images based on subject matter, of which “Bodies” was one. In the text, the authors describe Perlstein's home, whose walls were adorned with the images. To allude to this sense of immersion into his home, the images in the redesigned publication gradually increase in scale, frequency, and proximity until each image takes up an entire page. Certain elements from the original were kept, such as the section of blue pages. In addition, the work aims to feel scattered, hinting at the subject matter and surrealism in general.
