Elinor Carucci

Closer

The book firstly illustrates Carucci’s family, but not necessarily in the typical fashion. We are not given imitation studio portraits or a chronological documentation of her family life, but rather snapshots which give insight into Carucci’s life. The photographs depict not what these people look like, but rather Carucci’s relationship with them.
The images themselves have contrasting warm and cool tones, with bursts of vibrant red and blue creating impact and the flesh tones tying the series together.
