The publisher Tony Cederteg from Libraryman in Stockholm presents his 2 latest exciting publications including the photographers in the Bookshop.
Vincent Ferrané will sign copies of his book Milky Way, and François Halard will sign copies of Saul Leiter.
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.
In 2015, François Halard visited late Saul Leiter’s almost empty apartment in the East Village, two years after his passing, in 2013. He took photographs of the decrepit walls, the empty closet, and of what Saul Leiter had left behind.
