PAUL GAFFNEY »WE MAKE THE PATH BY WALKING« – selected by ÁNGEL LUIS GONZÁLEZ

»Treading on a well-established Irish preoccupation with what landscape means to contemporary photography, Paul Gaffney’s body of work entitled we make the path by walking gift us with a meticulously assembled selection of images. They were all produced during a journey of over 3.500 km throughout Spain, Portugal and the south of France in a bid to distill such introspective experiences. The translation of his outstanding project into the book format could not have been done with more care and study. Printed by Hudson Killeen in Dublin, and adequately catalogued with its ISBN, it is presented in a photographic slipcase covering three-quarters of the discrete grey cover, but allowing the title and artist information to be read just above it. Both the format and the binding of the publication are part of a wise strategy to offer what is at first a seemingly small book, but one that when opened immerses us in the splendor of its wide format and its meditative images. A considered rhythm in the design, the layout, requests the reader to become an active participant in the journey and reflect on Paul’s sublime findings, or on what we actually experience through them.«
