Ziad Antar - After Images
English edition
Kaph Books
Ziad Antar experiments forms, colors and light with his lensless camera, during a long journey searching for the cities where mythology was born. At the core of his work is the questioning of the foundations of photography, through the destructuration of this art (monograph edited in collaboration with Hans Ulrich Obrist).
