A new book by Jessica Backhaus presents snapshots from her visits to Chile over the last seven years. ‘Far Away But Close’ was published by Another Place Press as a book full of stories that gradually unfold for the beholder.
Far away but close showcases work made by Jessica Backhaus during many visits to Chile over the last seven years. “Presence, image, and suggestion: art’s sacred trinity is embodied with such generous concentration in these images by Jessica Backhaus, who we as Chileans should thank for making so exquisitely visible, what we are too distracted to notice. The power of the color that portrays and crowns the subject, provokes the sensation that we are seeing something we see every day but haven’t actually seen before.” we learn from the introduction by Antonio Skármeta.
