I would have liked to see some short parragraphs accompanying the photos so other people can better understand the reality behind them.
And this he does with a very, very steady hand.
Rarely nowadays, do I get really impressed with a photo publication, but this one really did it. The opening shot of the silhouette picture of the "devil" with curly hair in front of a cross sets the pace - we know we are not going to see just another line-up of pretty but boring pictures so common these days.
Anderson's very grainy, gritty and dark pictures (shot with good old film perhaps?) is a bold move but works perfectly.
My biggest gripe with most photo books is usually the editing. Too often there is too many pictures so that it becomes repetitive, or there are too few so that you don't get a good impression of the story, and most commonly the pictures are incohesive and looks like they have been loosely scrambled together.
Not so with Capitolio. Tightly edited, varied and never gets boring. It ranges from self-explanatory registrations to subjective pictures where you can hardly make out what is happening. The book needs both, because there are no subtitles!
Another reviewer compared it to a well edited movie, and I agree perfectly with that.Read more ›
