I Looked and Looked book


This discrete artist book by Magali Duzant borrows its title from a love letter Alfred Stieglitz wrote to Georgia O’Keeffe in 1923. In his letter, Stieglitz describes a full, white moon over Lake George, New York. On the same night, O’Keeffe penned a description of a pink moon, as witnessed from the shore of York Beach, Maine. Inspired by the synchronicity of this exchange, Duzant asked twenty creatives from around the world to describe the full moon on the same night, October 29, 2012. This evening brought the unexpected force of Hurricane Sandy and led to wildly varying accounts of a single sky. Duzant weaves these narratives together with her own images in a reflection on our relationship to the night sky. The book is printed on a pearlescent paper stock and finished with foil stamped half moons on its front and back cover.
