Repurposing discarded books

The image here entitled Fairy Tale is a photograph of a book that has been creatively manipulated by Cara Barer. She arrives at her imagery by chance and experimentation:

A random encounter on Drew Street with the Houston Yellow Pages was the primary inspiration for this project. With the discarded books that I have acquired through different means, I am attempting to blur the line between objects, sculpture, and photography.

Her photographs are primarily a documentation of a physical evolution. She has changed a common object into sculpture in a state of flux and thus captured as a photo image. Her journey continues to evolve and has unfolded in ways that have surprised and galvanized her to carry on, and search for more ways to make us consider the future of books.
