KA-BOOM The Explosion of Landscape (signed + C-print)


  • Image of KA-BOOM The Explosion of Landscape (signed + C-print)

KA-BOOM is a fictional explosive manual in which sourced vintage photographs encounter staged do-it-yourself explosive construction images, with the photographs Andrea Botto has shot of real non-military explosions. The result is a sophisticated enquiry of photography’s contemporary status, in which numerous questions are raised and no simple answers are given.
