“If you’ve seen it all, close your eyes”
presents extracts from the handwritten notebooks
of London-based artist and photographer Coco Capitán
now at Fondazione Sozzani Bookshop.
She has always scribbled down her thoughts
– everywhere, all the time – often on scraps of paper
that have filled notebook after notebook.
From her first day in London in 2010 until now,
and as she travels the world on photography assignments,
Coco Capitán’s writings grant an insight into her free and instinctive creative process.
Playful aphorisms and short poems address an array of issues
with hints of humour and irony.
She combines the serious with the mundane
as she shares in her first text-based book
social, metaphorical or sentimental moments with her witty tone and distinctive hand.
