Read Punto d'ombra Online Free - "Punto d'ombra" presenta il nuovo lavoro di Teju Cole: una serie di immagini e parole che, come le pagine di un diario visivo, seguono e testimoniano i suoi diversi viaggi e peregrinazioni nel mondo. Anche se il progetto ha delle connessioni evidenti con le opere di autori come John Berger, Chris Marker e W.G. Sebald, "Punto d'ombra" di Teju Cole è qualcosa di diverso. Un lavoro originale e coraggioso che combina la poetica fotografia di paesaggio di Teju Cole con la sua prosa, lirica, allusiva e impegnata. Con un'introduzione di Siri Hustvedt.

Teju Cole’s art is exceptional at the same time it is accessible. In my experience, the confluence of these two things happens only rarely, which is how Cole has come to occupy an exalted place in my pantheon of artists. If I say his photography can stop us in our tracks, it says nothing of his w...

(3.75) Whether a short novel of Sebaldesque wanderings in the Big Apple (Open City), or a collection of essays on literature, art and travel (Known and Strange Things), Teju Cole’s works all share a dedication to seeing clearly. This book is composed of about 160 one- and two-page spreads in whic...

Teju Cole has become for me an indispensable writer because the intelligence of his work enables me to gain a more compassionate understanding of the world. But, of course, Cole is much more than a craftsman of words and a sage of ideas. He is also a renowned photographer. His greatest gift, howe...

Teju Cole might be one of the coolest dudes in the world. Art historian, novelist, photographer, globetrotter. These photos are not awesome natural landscapes or vibrant, stunning portraits that you'd want to put on your wall. They're mostly of the fairly mundane and banal, or of wonderful places...

This work has a straight-forward pattern. One page has several paragraphs of commentary. On the facing page is a photo. Sometimes there is a common element between the commentary and the photo, but not always, at least for me.
Nor is there a common theme from one commentary to t...

Truly stunning and inspiring. Pale imitation as they are, I need to get back to recording words and images.

A catalog of facile photography ... the blind spot here is the utter contempt to propose anything directly to the reader/viewer.

This book is interesting, it pairs a photo on one side with a fragment on the other. The fragments are sometimes historical, sometimes personal, sometimes artistic, or an explanation of what made the image interesting. I'm glad this book is out in the world because it broadens the range of what c...

I wanted to give this more stars, but in the end I didn't feel it got to me the way I wanted it to. I was engaged. It also made start to take different pictures with my Instax and on Instagram. But it didn't leave me with that enthusiasm that I feel with 4 or 5 star books, that feeling of complet...

Many things to notice in this book and the perspective contained within. It has a clarity and dreaminess about it, and even the most quotidian photograph can become part of a rich story through the right eye. Some of the more literal essays gave a fascinating snapshot of a stranger's life, while...
