Rafael Tanaka Monzò: Abend der Worte
The title means “evening of words”, the sunset of them, the end. A kind of silence, while thinking about the past: and hazy memories left behind, resurface. The short stories and poems inside also follow the flow of memory and are like flashbacks in an indefinite past: the poems of Paul Klee and the thought of Giordano Bruno, of which some extracts are found in the book. This photobook is fast like a zine but intimate like a diary.
The book is printed on an original light-blue lined paper of the 70’s and on a dirty white coated paper.
100 copies numbered and signed. Including a 20 x 30 cm signed print. Both are signed by the photographer with a kanji stamp.
