Aya (coming soon)

Following the path of Charles Kroehle, a pioneering nineteenth-century photographer who supposedly disappeared in the Peruvian Amazon, Arguiñe Escandón and Yann Gross describe an unreal immersion into the dense jungle vegetation, structured by shamanic experiences, and develop a process of organic photography.
Using both vintage and contemporary images, this book offers a dialogue on the representation of exoticism, on the imaginary of the distant and the remote. As the narrative progresses, the exploration turns into a ghostly quest, an experience in which one loses oneself.

The book will be released by Editorial RM at Paris Photo 2019.

The exhibition and book launch will take place at Wilde Gallery in Geneva on November 16, 2019.

A collaborative work with Arguiñe Escandón.
