Luke (Madrid)

Michael Wynne

"Luke (Madrid)", a leporello, is part of the One-a-Month photobook challenge Michael Wynne set in October 2016.

"It took a while to find the right form for this work. I wanted something that would echo my encounter with a city as well as with a new person, the intimacy of the photoshoot and the meandering through Madrid's streets and art galleries. I tried several options until everything came together in the accordion folded book, which is also known as a leporello. Leporello is the name of Don Giovanni’s manservant. When his master asks for a catalogue of his lovers, the list is so long it falls open like a concertina unravelling. Up until the 1950s, it was common to see postcards bound in an accordion fold to reveal glimpses of the city." (Michael Wynne)

Other books of the project are "Body Part", "You the Boxer" and "In His Sleep".
