Edition : First / Antwerp / Modenatie / 2008 / Softcover. / VG+
4to, 98pp. Printed wraps. Numerous Colour and Black & White plates. Minor crease to rear cover.

A stellar effort from Branquinho here. From the press release: ‘The magazine was to evoke a walk in the woods at night, where at every turn the winding forest trails divert you from your actual destination whilst darkness and the rising mist retain the mystery, a recurring theme in her oeuvre. The girls who inhabit the woods, though they appear to be hunted game, are somehow haunted and bewitched, innocent and severe at the same time. Veronique’s penchant for the seemingly ordinary ‘ everyday situations that unexpectedly take a bizarre twist ‘ explains the discrete presence of David Lynch within these pages: quotes from his films haunt the different chapters.’ Brilliant photo-narratives, superb contributions from Lynch, Burton, Stoops, Coolen, Simons etc. An excellent installment in the ‘A magazine curated by..’ series.
