Three careers and three very different pathways by three artists who work with exactly the same distance: short distance.
Emotional proximity and optical proximity. Everything is very close, we feel the characters breathing, the artists seize us by the throat and make us sniff their world.
CRISIS and RISK have the same letters.
We don’t mean anything by this, just that it’s true.
RISK and CRISIS have the same letters.
The world of Standard Books is the world of fine art photography. A world in which photography intersects with other disciplines, a world of alternative documentary sources, a world of photographic compulsion and image collecting, a world of creative independence linked with the photographic. The place where impossible projects are not longer impossible.
Standard Books promotes the work of emerging artists linked with local culture, accompanies us throughout the creative process and provides us with the tools necessary to carry out its projects without limits.
