Recent Books #1 – “I thought you knew where all of the elephants lie down” by André PríncipePosted: April 19, 2011
In his second book designed as a classical music score, Príncipe continues his exploration of photography as a way of knowing reality.
The book has a strong narrative feeling, with two distinctive parts; a very precise sequence of images of girls and animals is followed by a hazy, dreamlike worldview.
With its Leonard Cohen line title, I thought you knew where all of the elephants lie down is an existentialist travelogue that defies the idea that there are pots of gold at the end of the rainbow.
