This reminds me of my favourite books, Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino. It’s an amazing book that describes a number of imaginary cities. Each city has strange or unusual aspects, at first they all seem fantastic and nonsensical. Eventually themes and patterns start to emerge, and you start to read into them ideas of time, love, existence / non-existence, memory.
It has been a few years since i re-read it – my copies generally get given away… some how it never seems to have the same impact as it had for me, or at least nobody has ever come back and told me that they are still thinking about weeks later.
Maybe if i read more books like Invisible Cities i’d take more photographs like the above. Photographs were everything seems not quite right, where the scale is confusing, where you’re not really sure about anything.
Also, people people tend to stare when you kneel down in puddles with a big camera.
