Diary #0, Things That do not Happen
Fabio Barile – limited edition book, 2009
I have started to post this book several times, and each time I was beat to the punch by someone, somewhere, who also had something to say. Here is a smart, edgy review by George Slade for Photo Eye, and with better illustrations than mine above. I am getting tired of destroying spines of books just to snap some images from within. So check out Photo eye’s book tease to see more.
“Do things happen? What happens when they do not happen?”
This is a very quiet book which seems to question the relevance which a photographer gives to a specific moment simply by pushing a button. Not to be confused with the phenomenal “decisive moments”, these moments are so wonderfully unspectacular, they could have easily slipped past. As a diary, this book reads like probably most of our own diaries; mainly forgettable events, which, when visited again, become more complex because the details have slipped away.
48 pages, numerous color images
