I Got The Looks + Details

Dat cover.It’s been almost a year (A YEAR!) in the making, but today, finally, we are underway with the whole process of printing, color proofing and the likes. It will be ready for the end of May, but I’m yet to know the exact day/time/place for sure.

Also, this is the time when all the thing you thought were correct, looks like you can do it better, as in: moving a 0,5 pt line a few millimeters to the left or try to hide that 0,04% of the picture that maybe looks funny, sometimes. I used to dedicate lots of time to those kind of things, but I decided to let go. It’s not that I’m obsessed with the details, but as you go on, the gap between perfection and your current product begins to shorten, but it will NEVER be perfect. Because few things are. Instead, I focus on how and when are going to distribute it, on making a good campaign out of it and basically, DON’T FUCK THIS UP.

I really hope you enjoy what’s been going on as much as I have. Well, I’ve had my rage days, my homicidal days and my I-give-up-damn-you-all days. But it’s worth it.

Cheers!

maquetaPara algunos que vieron a foto en Facebook o Instagram, acá les cuento la historia completa (no habrá lateo, lo juro).

Ya en Croacia y a pesar de siempre haber tenido pésimas notas en historia, me imaginé un libro de fotos sobre, justamente historia. Como no tengo el tiempo para descubrir nuevos hechos que me postulen a tener un magister o un doctorado, decidí ir por aquello que siempre tuve a la mano y que finalmente no se siente como algo del todo desconocido: Inmigración.

Claro, no fui yo quien emigró, no fui yo quien llegó del otro lado del mundo. tampoco fui yo quien escribió los libros ni mucho menos. Aun así, podría ser yo quien lo recopile y tome las fotos que no existen de todo esto, que fue la inmigración croata a Magallanes.

Con esta idea fija, junté a dos amigos y armé la maqueta en cuestión, para empezar a mover el cuento en FONDART y en gente que tiene plata y no sabe aún que quiere dármela.

Es un paso chico, es un primer paso, a la mitad de una marcha, de una carrera, de un paseo o de un gran salto.

Los escucho atentamente.

Some of you already saw the images either in Facebook or Instagram and wanted to know the full story behind those 2 printed copies of a book-to-be. Sadly, for now, that book is only a mock-up, a “how it’s gonna look like” element for me to show to public fundings, and to people who are willing to give me their financial support and they don’t know yet.

The story goes like this: A year ago I left Croatia and came to Chile, hoping to gather information, people and fundings enough to make a book about the croatian immigration in chilean Patagonia. Loads of books already tell that story, some of them through the eyes of history, some others through their own eyes, however, none of them could exactly tell people here in Patagonia, and there in Croatia, how those two countries were in any way similar or different.

And that’s where I step in, with my camera, my lenses (one of them just broke in an ice-trekking last weekend) and my two legs.

It’s amazing how little things get higher perspectives when printed, when formalized, when taken seriously, when worked as a professional assignment, when you risk and take the jump and the seconds you spend on the air, suddenly transform into weeks, months, years, and back to seconds again.

I look forward to hear from you.
