Description of book: INTERGALÁTICO, the published debut of Guilherme Gerais, is some kind of a visual literary essay. Comprising a narrative in black and white filled with photographs, illustrations and small traces, the book is presented as a map, a guide, a trail to a ritualistic journey, but with an enigmatic starting point: a missing space, although preceding.
Captured in cties like Londrina, Capadocia, Prague and Istanbul, these images are alternated in an order that requires immediate participation of the reader: from the beginning there is the invitation for a game, an outcome, a challenge between what is seen and what remains. The strategy, in this case, articulated spontaneously by the photographer, always points to the random, the disorder, the primarity of an alleged previous life – something that is divided between land space and the virtual universe.
The best thing about self-publishing: Time is on your side.
