Join Janelle Lynch for a signing of her book Barcelona.
From 2007 to 2011, while living in Spain, Janelle Lynch explored the fallow landscape outside of Barcelona. With her 8×10-inch camera and a portrait lens, the artist photographed pylons, puddles, leaves, and litter as metaphors for themes of absence and presence, mourning and remembrance. Following the success of Los Jardines de México (Radius Books, 2011), Barcelona continues Lynch’s long-term interest in representations of the life cycle in the landscape. Included with the five series of images that comprise this remarkable new project are writings in English and Spanish by the artist. The book begins with a personal essay about Lynch’s early relationship with nature. Woven throughout the remaining pages are text about and quotes from Charles Burchfield, Wendell Berry, and Roland Barthes, whose works have been influential in Lynch's process.
