Shirana Shahbazi: Monstera

Here is an artist's book for artists, a burst of color after an especially colorless cold-spell. Iranian-born, Zurich-based photographer Shirana Shahbazi's vibrant and engaging 256-page story features not a word of text; each and every spread juxtaposes two images that converse. Abstraction, sequence, color, and hints of narrative create mysterious associations that make you want to keep looking until you've flipped the very last page. This is a book to collect, and to give.
