Falsification: Photographs by Seba Kurtis with a Story by Hiromi Kawakami
|Author||Seba Kurtis; Hiromi Kawakami|
|Publisher||The Gould Collection|
Since its inception in 2016, The Gould Collection editors have brought together a diverse group of photographers and writers from around the world. A shared thematic sensibility underlies the editors’ selection of the photographer-writer pairings presented in each volume. There are commonalities but also differences. Somewhere in between lies an ambiguous space that destabilizes reader assumptions—inviting shifting perspectives and a fluid interaction between words and images. For volume six of The Gould Collection, altered realities—by choice or coercion—inform the pairing of photographs by Seba Kurtis with a short story by Hiromi Kawakami. Conflict, whether national or local, transforms and imprints lives. Some flee, others remain, but all are marked by the trauma. Memories of what was are often elusive or completely altered, even after life regains some degree of normalcy.
