Two Hardcovers in slipcase, 125 images, black and white tritone. Photography, concept and design by David Jiménez. Edited by Iñaki Domingo and Ramon Reverte.
„Fourteen years after the publication of Infinito, Editorial RM presents versus, a new photobook project by David Jiménez (b. 1970, in Seville), which originated around the time of the first book and has slowly matured in the course of all these years.
The book consists of two volumes which complement each other and are interconnected by subtle visual resonances, creating an indivisible unity. The core of the project is precisely this network of flashes of light out of darkness, which trace a way bifurcating into two parallel paths. It is the imaginary space opened up between these paths that reveals the true meaning of the journey on which the reader has been invited.
Although the book contains images taken over twenty years in nineteen different countries, all of them belong to the same territory, halfway between the real and the imaginary, that abstract universe in which the author customarily works. Deliberately freed of narrative lines, the images explore the limits of visual perception and transport us to an uncertain region in which we only have our intuition to guide us.
David Jiménez’s second photobook represents an evolution of the author’s photographic language that began with Infinito, already a milestone in the recent history of the Spanish photobook. In a sense, versus maintains the same interest in compositional structures based on symmetry, while at the same time probingmore complex poetic resonances and images, at the very limits of representation.“
