the unboxing was quite an experience. we stroked the photobook's cover so obsessively we could be charged with harassment.
fortuitous faery! here's how the spread looks like:
here's another favorite spread, featuring my rat gypsy (who's in heaven now)! i love the concept in this one.
we came up with 20 pairs all in all, and ige just penned out a simple "title" for our cover page:
since ige did the cover, the last page features film photos of the "authors" doing our thing, taken by none other than yours truly. a fitting end page, i must say.
making a collaborative project like this is difficult! i have to admit, ige & i may be buddies but we are still very different persons with different "methods" and attitudes about working, and i guess the squabbles are part of 'making things work'. in the end you just think about what really matters, that little thing you hold dear, and then, when you see your output, you go all wow and think you want to do it again. okay maybe not in the near future, haha.
thanks again to jo for the awesome opportunity to create our own photobook! we can surely say that in this case, the 'creative process' is definitely integral to the value of a piece of art. hahaha.
