DRY THE RIVER

2014

Self-published book

 

Dry the River is a documentary landscape project exploring the complexity of a contested space, the Turia Gardens - referring to notions on space, representation, the truth and the everyday. The project tracks the development of a dry riverbed in Valencia, which has been turned into a park and recreation grounds. It follows the ongoing journey of local people from past to present and looks towards an uncertain future.

 

Using own photographs mixed with found items, texts, archival materials and postcards, a complex collection of voices emerges in the book.
