Paris: Dialogues and Meditations

from 28.00

In this unique art book, fine art photographer Jonas Yip and renowned poet and scholar Wai-lim Yip engage in a dialogue about Paris, pairing expressive, atmospheric photographs with evocative poems. Like two Bauderlairean flâneurs walking around Paris who cannot let go of the memories that flow silently from the city’s buildings, parks, and relics, the authors travel through time and dreams seeking a forgotten history among the trembling light and shadows. The book features over 80 richly toned black-and-white photographs, which Professor Leo Ou-Fan Lee in his introduction calls “shadowy landscapes … dreamscapes [that] seduce us and arouse strange sensations.” Noted poet and anthologist Jerome Rothenberg calls this book “the best presentation so far of [Wai-lim Yip’s] poetry in English.”

There are two editions available.

The large coffee table version is the one to have if you're all about the images. It's nice. It's expensive. $60 (88 images / 160 pages)

The smaller digest version has all the images, but is smaller and softcover. It's nice too, and less expensive. $28 (88 images / 132 pages)
