Sightwalk, Gueorgui Pinkhassov’s first book, is far more than just a book of photographs. It is a beautiful object and an extraordinary piece of design in its own right: a modernist Japanese photo album created from Oriental fabrics and papers, and bound by hand. Within, the sense of innovation and artistry is communicated through the photographs that explore the complex ways in which singular details such as plays of light and reflections can capture a spirit and shape an atmosphere.
In these images, settings sometimes no longer make clear spatial or thematic sense. Rather, just like the artist’s accompanying poetic texts that bring them to life, the pictures become a play on our perceptions.
