Naini and the Sea of Wolves - Limited edition book, 2008
This is the latest from one of my favorite publishers right now, Farewell Books. This title from the Peruvian photographer Trinidad Carillo is a poetic fairy-tale with her daughter Naini as the main subject.
As with most of the Farewell books, this one has very little text, but what there is, thankfully, not a description of the images, but a poem which adds another layer of its own.
The voice moves in the grass, picking up the lightyou are kept in places beyond faces and gardensYou are kept like yes fits in noYou say: Building a cloud is all it takes in my worldSarah Hallström (excerpt)
This little book, only about 20x20 cm with 30 pages and 24 color images, is already nominated for the Swedish Photobook Award, and rightly so.
You can get them directly through Farewell, but I've seen that Photo-Eye has signed copies. As with all of the titles at Farewell, they are quite limited and destined to become rare.
My 4-year old photo assistant is not included.
