Fate Shifts Shapes catalog

Inspired by a Philadelphia Photo Arts Center exhibition curated by Nicholas Muellner, this catalog-as-artist’s book folds the viewer into a darkly obscure, emotionally charged encounter with the contemporary Russian experience through a fluid sequence of images and poems that obscure and reveal one another in a series of layered gatefolds. Cover features a metallic blue book cloth stamped with a subtle halftone image and duplexed to an understated beige cardstock.
