The book illustrates and documents the work which I realized together with the artisan Josevaldo Barros in 2010.
On one hand documentation, catalogue and artist book, its design is conceived as well as entertaining children’s book. Its therefore meant to reach out for a broader public.
It includes an introduction to the project ONE MAN, a conversation between artist and artisan and in a second part photographies of the figures. These are put into scene in free and associative combinations with each other to produce new relations and open narrative interpretations.
