Boismenu de, Geoffroy Image System #2 - 74 Polaroids USA/ 1993-1995. UNOPENED!!
Image System is the name of a Polaroid camera used by Geoffroy de Boismenu when he lived in the States. Between 1993 and 1995, he accumulated snapshots, most of them taken in the street: graffiti, lifeless bodies and wrecked cars: his America, often close to chaos, turns out to be fascinating.
Instead of re-publishing the first sold-out Image System (RVB Books, 2011), Geoffroy de Boismenu rather went through his photographic archive to suggest a sequel similarly set in the 90s. The new selection of Polaroid images is reproduced full-page in a large unbound format. Once again, the book offers a double reading of his photographs:
1. The double pages confront two half-Polaroids, thus composing through vis-à-vis and loss of scale a brand new image – a “third photograph”.
2. With the absence of binding, readers can retrieve the original images in full and recompose their own sequencing.
