Presentation of Divided Soul on the Magnum website:

" David Alan Harvey's Divided Soul is a collection of more than 100 color photographs and personal texts representing his 30-year journey throughout the Spanish and Portuguese diaspora. Exploring the exuberance and incongruities of Hispanic life, Harvey looks into the "divided soul" of the Spanish-speaking world, a world where tradition and ritual are inherent in everyday life. Harvey's images encompass much that is evocative and often contradictory. There are images of pulsating street carnivals in Cuba, African tribal ceremonies in Brazil, an erotic disco in Lisbon, birthday 'fiestas' and First Communion ceremonies in Mexico. Harvey's gift for anticipating the fleeting yet revealing moment results in photographs that combine a direct documentary style and emotional mood with his own powerful, personal vision. "

David Alan Harvey, membre de l'agence Magnum Photos, a une passion pour le monde hispanophone et lusophone, et a voyagé depuis plus de trente ans dans la péninsule ibérique et en Amérique du Sud. Ce livre est une lunette sur ce monde, tel que l'a perçu Harvey, dans ses couleurs, dans sa chaleur, dans ses traditions.

Le livre est séparée en trois chapitres ("Rituels", "Lieux" et "Rêveries") mais le thème principal reste biens les habitants des pays visités, les hommes, les femmes, les enfants que Harvey photographie toujours en mouvement, dans des couleurs et des gestuelles qui transmettent avant tout une certaine beauté et une forme de dévotion en toutes choses...

NB : Nos exemplaires sont issus de soldes d'éditeur, ce sont des exemplaires neufs et en excellent état, mais peuvent présenter de très discrètes traces d'entreposage et de manipulations (rien de plus, nous avons vérifié :-)
