How To Fly
Pedro Guimarães
XYZ Books


96 pages
ISBN 9789899906334


In How To Fly photographer Pedro Guimarães takes us on a poetic journey into the subculture of private aviation. The language he employs takes the disguise of the documentary genre yet what initially appears to be a flight manual quickly reveals Guimarães’ true autobiographical intentions through the use of poetic punctuation. How To Fly is, after all, a reflection on the inevitable traumatic events of life and describes a series of emergency manoeuvres designed to keep oneself alive.
