Madrid - Book Of Books: Jorge Carrion | Alberto Garcia-Alix
‘Madrid: Book of Books’ is a collaboration between writer Jorge Carrión and photographer Alberto García-Alix. It is part of the ‘Cities’ series, which explores how to visualise a particular place, in this case, the Spanish capital. Like a puzzle, each fragment contributes to the city’s literary landscape; each piece reconstructs part of the history, objects, conversations, memories, anecdotes, sensations and even phantasmagoria of cultural spaces dedicated to books in Madrid – a dimension of the city that is often invisible for many. Guided by Carrión’s knowledge, plus interviews and analysis, the journey through these reading routes is accompanied by images by García-Alix.
