Rome-Malibu / Ari Marcopoulos
Design Roger Willems
210 x 280 mm
Photographs taken by Ari Marcopoulos in Rome (February – March 2016), and Malibu (August 2016). With a text contribution by Kara Walker. “Rome. (…) Here, no image or structure is complete without symbolic framing devices, which also require framing devices, and so on. Ad infinitum. Malibu. Rockstars and fallen rocks and the edge, here is where the European conquest of the New World meets its fountain of youth endgame. We have reached the end, and it is vast.”
