Friends in Eternity - Monograph
[Out of Stock]

In Friends in Eternity, visual artist Isabel Okoro explores an empathetic approach to world building in her normatopia, Eternity. Normatopia, a self-coined term, describes a space that considers the tensions between a harsh reality and a utopia, and chooses to rest and thrive in the humanly achievable sweet spot that exists in the middle.

Brace yourself with feelings before going any further. The framing and arrangement of photographs within this book, done by Isabel and designer Ayotunde Sule, is utterly evocative... You might catch yourself trying to steal a reflection from an iris or a glossy pair of lips. You might try to follow a trail of light... The brief innocence in the eyes of the guilty. The embrace of a lover in serenity...Liquid waves caught between blooming and withering. The half-light. The sun setting behind two unidentifiable men, their bodies becoming stencils of painterly slants. Have you eaten today?
