In Between – The Deepest Spot In Memory

Posted by Peter Nitsch | October 19th, 2013 Share

Taiwanese photographer I-Hsuen Chen has produced a book, In Between ($30), that the artist accumulated in the two years she’d spent in the United States. All photographs in this artist book are printed across the gutter in such a way that the most compelling part of the image lies in between the gap created by the glued binding of the pages, making any faces or facial impressions invisible. The reader is then only able to peek at the abstract figures or ambiguous narrative elements instead of particular people or things. “To me as the author, as a result of not being able to see, was able to keep the true memories in literally the middle of the book—the deepest spot in my memory,” explains Chen. ❚
