Paul Gaffney

Binding: One hardback and one softcover
ISBN: 9782919873296


Publisher's Description

Walking through the Luxembourgish Ardennes, Gaffney documented his wanderings using polaroids. Later, he re-explored certain routes after nightfall, to photograph under the light of the full moon.

Bathed in its soft otherworldly glow, the forest’s narrow steep valleys evoke a mysterious, psychological wilderness, in what is in reality, a highly managed man-made environment.

“Drawn with light that is barely perceptible to the eye, Gaffney’s photographs emerge out of intuition, coincidence, and an underlying longing for connection and stillness. And although it’s tempting to call them landscapes, they are created through different ways of knowing a place – ways that acknowledge the moving, feeling body, rather than the distanced and distancing eye, as the foundation of our experience.” - Eugenie Shinkle

Perigee is a set of two photobooks in an edition of 750 copies. "The smaller white book is a softcover, but it's not actually a paper back. It's actually a vinyl cover magnet, so this smaller book attaches to the larger one."

Self-published in association with the CNA, Luxembourg.
