GONZALEZ, Andrea. American Origami.

(No place): FW: books / Light Works, 2019. First edition. Quarto. 192 pages. The volume is the result of six years of photographic research, which presents in a statement of over 700 photographs that closely examines the epidemic of mass shootings in American schools. The project includes first person interviews, forensic documents, and press materials, as well as original photographs and texts. The varied elements repeat and fold into each other, illuminating relationships between myth-making, atonement, and collective healing. Bound in a unique way, the book creates a parallel world of the past and the present, showing the silenced landscape interwoven with the personal artefacts created by those left behind. A very good copy in folded wrappers, final page torn at two of the four staples. A haunting work.
