About the Book
The texts and the photographs of “Encounters” produce our dreams. Being awake as well as dreaming are equally unreal. If dreaming were not real, neither would the dreamer.
We should be consistent and mentally prolong these words, these photographs.
It is amazing the excess of the hyperreal-reality of the photographs.
Alexandra McNichols- Torroledo thinks in poems. Satisfaction does not exist, neither does sufficiency.
The femininity as the principle of uncertainty.
It would be a beautiful thing to kiss these pages and give them life as in the fairytales.
Este libro está construido para que nos detengamos ante cada página y miremos.
Los textos y las fotografías de “Encuentros” confeccionan nuestros sueños.
Tanto la vigilia como el sueño son igualmente irreales. Si el sueño no fuera verdadero tampoco el soñador lo sería.
Debemos ser consecuentes y prolongar mentalmente estas palabras estas fotografías
Es impresionante el exceso de realidad-hiperrealidad de las fotografías.
Alexandra McNichols-Torroledo piensa en poemas. No existe satisfacción no existe suficiente.
La femineidad como principio de incertidumbre.
Sería bonito besar estas páginas y darles vida como en los cuentos.
