The black of the background of a photograph goes straight to the eye of the brain, more so than the white of its light.
TEXTS BY VICENÇ ALTAIÓ
The wonders of the world are found in the most peculiar places. An abundance of beauty made out of shapes, textures and light. Always brief, but reoccurring. Per Cromwell has the last two decades travelled the world catching these brief moments. A dove stretching its wings in Kuala Lumpur and a girl in a Shanghai Art Museum doing the same, a man on a scooter with a thin white raincoat that suddenly get caught in the wind in Phnom Penh, a peculiar fog bank in Iceland, a rare reflection in Denver or ten birds leaving the tree of life along the road of death in Zimbabwe.
The acclaimed poet and writer Vicenç Altaió has interpreted these images and added a new dimension of reflections over how we all see and interact with the world.
Images curated and combined in a new and striking way by the Catalan art gallerist and custodian Felip Casañas Puig who has created intriguing dualities between the images.
A unique collaboration and for the first time the photographs by Per Cromwell presented in a book. In the edition also previously never before seen works. A dialogue between a poet and a photographer. Between images and thought. A journey round the world and through the mind.
A limited edition of 800 books.

"A SPLENDID, SPECTACULAR BOOK, AN EXCEPTIONAL WORK OF ART"
THE BOOK CONTAINS PREVIOUSLY UNPUBLISHED IMAGES.
Per Cromwell's photographs distil a balanced
and perfect visual proposal between form and content.
Live representations that acquire hypnotic qualities, silent, and where time does not seem to run. Mutant and fleeting scenes that are located on the periphery of our everyday life.
CURATOR, FORMER ARTISTIC DIRECTOR AT THE FESTIVAL DE CAHORS AND ARTISTIC COUNSELOR FOR THE HSBC FOUNDATION FOR PHOTOGRAPHY A PARÍS
Cromwell has the educated eye for pre-visualization.
The importance of his work lies in an apparent simplicity
and in an impeccable and forceful composition, capable
of creating enormously suggestive and poetic images.
His images emanate poetry, plasticity, magic ..
PHOTOGRAPHER AND CULTURAL MANAGER

Per Cromwell creates a lyrical with a wide tone record
that stains the black and spreads white. Find, and find, the accuracy because without it there is no creation.
He is not a passive spectator, he is an instigator who
implicates unlimitedly in the event in order to shake
and interpellate the reader of his poems.
