Mitch Epstein photographs Siddharta Deb text Pierre Charpin case
The author describes the daily life of two students at the University of Calcutta who come from very different social backgrounds, which they are both trying to escape from. The minute detail in which the author records their physical and mental movements and every change in mood finds its resonance in the refined prosaic nature of Mitch Epstein’s photographs. Pierre Charpin designed a traycase with a blue lacquered lid as an echo of the photographer’s strong emphasis on color and his ties with the Memphis movement. The text is fractured into seven modules, each contained within a uniform yellow form whose outlines recall the design of the casing.
