Jorge Macchi photographs Alan Pauls text Sam Hecht case
Jorge Macchi’s poetry lies in his affirmation of the ephemeral, in his close attention to minute incidents, to everyday coincidences in life.
The five photographs presented in this book bear the imprint of a certain melancholy linked to the idea of “slow deterioration” or “disappearance,” illustrated in four of the photographs as the tussle between a street number and the bark of a tree.
Absence and degradation are also central themes in the story written by Alan Pauls. His main character is a solitary wanderer who ineluctably goes mad, his only recourse being to tell lies in a sort of self-inflicted simulation of amnesia.
