Milky Way

@ Ferrané, Vincent



Presentation by Libraryman:

"Milky Way is a series of pictures of the author's wife and child during breastfeeding. The aesthetic aspect is determined by the feeding behaviour which imposes its geometry on bodies and on space they occupy. These images contain familiar echoes of classic icons but adorn themselves with modern elements. From these everyday moments, seized with harshness, without bitterness, emerges the force of exchanges between two beings and the milk becomes, as in the Greek legend of the Milky Way, the vector of a world under construction."

The first printing of this book was quickly sold out, and we are offering copies of the second printing.

  • Presentation by Libraryman: "Page after page they undress. Their legs laying down gracefully on a bed, resting for eternity—so it seems. Others are standing up, can you feel the warmth coming out of their skin? It seems they are dancing together from scene to scene. Inviting you to join them. Their naked bodies find refuge between the paint strokes, next...
