  • Synopsis: The kind of images and composition, their grain and some other features suggest that these images are the result of the amplification of old negatives. The book consists in the images of a table set for a banquet before it takes place. The amplified details of some objects suggest traditional themes of the Occidental painting, like still lives or vanitas. The book was made for an exhibition as the artist's own project.
