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.

Cole, taking inspiration from Marker's excellent San Soleil (and, with this particular format, La Jetée), has created a hybrid work of his photos and prose that, though a bit uneven, is a uniquely contemplative read. Continuing his work in OPEN CITY, we are led along by a peripatetic narrator, he...

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...

Teju Cole's Blind Spot is an uncommon book: a combination of writing and photography that try to meet each other on equal footing. This is rare because, while many people think of themselves as photographers and writers, few people are good enough at both to combine the two without some sort of i...

If I were a book I would like to be like Blind Spot; apparently sleek, beautiful and voluminous but edgy and dark on the inside. With words that draw lasting images in one’s mind and images revealing words and meanings you have always pictured in your mind but never found the means to express. An...

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

I read this in one rainy day ... blown away by the power of text and image, and the way Cole explores both humanity and the ‘blind spots’ of our world ... thx to Tellio for recommending this one (now I may need to splurge and buy, instead of library version)
