"I dreamed a thousand new paths. I woke and walked my old one."— Chinese Proverb (via showslow)
Scarti | Adam Broomberg & Oliver ChanarinScarti, the Italian word for scraps, is a humble name for this new gem of a photobook.
The book is, in reality, a collection of accidental mash-ups of overlapping images that first appeared 10 years ago (as single images) in the brilliant, anarchic photobook, Ghetto, by the creative duo Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin.
'Scarti di avviamento' is the technical term for the paper that is fed through the printing press to clean the drums of ink between print runs. This by-product is usually destroyed once the book is printed. But in this case, the accidental layering of the original images from Ghetto turned out to appear deliberate, bizarre and wonderfully artful. So, they were saved and safely stored away by publisher Gigi Giannuzzi. Following his untimely death in December 2012, Hannah Watson (Gigi’s partner in crime at Trolley) rediscovered this box, and the scarti have just now been published as works of art worth savoring for themselves.
