Note
  • Two books in one--cover, title page, and contents of the second title are bound upside down relative to the first title
  • Joan Fontcuberta is the 33rd recipient of the prestigious Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography
  • Fontcuberta's photography is itself about photographys own workings, and with each series he challenges the audience's trust in the veracity of the medium and its function as a system of representation. Confronting our anxieties about that system, Fontcuberta's careful fabrications are laced with clues and inconsistencies - the photographer himself even appears, disguised as Hans von Kubert or Joan Fontana
