The big format books shown at the Chennai Photo Biennale 2019 are original photographic prints designed to create three image-sequence in which one image relates to exterior and open landscapes, the other to interior and enclosed locations, and the third one to objects in space. The books work as a kind of ‘editing machine’ that brings into relation, the places and time that have hitherto seemed disconnected. The books ask of the viewer to create, through an awareness of and thinking about possible interconnections and the social and economic forces, that brought to the shaping of the spaces and objects depicted.
