Barcelona-based photographer Salva López visited numerous islands with his then-partner, and following their breakup took a solitary trip to Lanzarote to photograph its imposing volcanic landscape. Illa presents these stark black and white images along with the colour photographs taken during past trips, consisting mostly of portraits of his girlfriend. Designer Eloi Gimeno captured this duality perfecyly in book format, using the uncut binding to trap the photographs of the woman between the folds of the pages, causing them to appear as ghosts through the paper. Whether to cut the pages and release the images or keep them trapped is left up to the reader. It’s a beautiful example of how the book format can be used to shape a project.
