"256 Days" was born out of the need to regroup and clarify the memories gathered in ten months I spent traveling around South America in 2010. While it is based on a personal view of a hugely diverse continent, a somehow coherent sense of identity was prevalent. Split into four loosely defined "chapters" it attempts to mirror the consecutive stages of engagement with a different world.
Combining photos from different places and projects it works mainly as a visual diary and hopefully as a game of hide-and-seek. There are stories, some cherished others half forgotten, behind these images but new ones can always be imagined and constructed.
The images were shot throughout eastern South America during 2010 and made into an open edition, print-on-demand book with Blurb in June 2011.
It is available as dust-jacket hardback, softcover and iPad/iPhone ebook from Blurb.
