Sergio Larrain’s untitled ‘Home’ book

Posted in Photobooks (general) by Alec Soth on January 20, 2010

In Jeffrey Ladd’s review of Nothing But Home, he mention’s my recent book, Allowing Flowers (also reviewed by Jeff here). Soon after, Sébastien Girard emailed me. He wrote:

Reading about Allowing Flowers, it immediately made me think of an unordinary book I found in Santiago de Chile. An unknown book by one of your Magnum colleagues: Sergio Larrain. A few years ago I decided to go on a trip to Chile to meet him without knowing exactly where he was living, without appointment…A very hazardous trip. On my way I found this charity book! A good sign for the journey. Amazing layout! Amazing photographs! Something close to your project. I look forward to see your reaction.

Well, my reaction was half excitement, half jealousy. What a find!
