a Squale in New York
I recently found a fine little book, "New York City" by Squale, a young photographer, and went through it with great surprise.
The book is beautifully published through Blurb in the smaller dimension, paperback, yellowish paper normally used for guides. 9 euro its cheap price.
Nonetheless the black and white images melt their grays through the yellow paper and their visible grain and deep blacks give a punch to the view, leaving you the pleasure of being in front of a wonderful body of work enhanced by that "poor print quality" that is, in reality, very well studied and chosen.
Please, enjoy the view. All images come from the book.
"Squale is a french photographer mostly working in the field of street photography. Influenced by the ‘decisive moment’ philosophy of street photography, his images, however, reflect the traces of human presence, rather than the depiction of human life in a documentary style. Also influenced by japanese photobook culture, he uses this medium to distribute his images. Working with film cameras (medium and large format), he is, like many others today, an analog soul lost in an a digital world."
