‘American Origami’ Awarded at Schönste Bücher aus aller Welt
‘American Origami’ is the result of six years of photographic research by Andres Gonzalez that resulted in a statement of over 700 photographs, closely examining the epidemic of mass shootings in American schools, weaving together first-person interviews, forensic documents, and original photographs. The book takes the reader through a visual journey of shared grief, to illuminate moments of beauty and bring forward moral questions embedded in acts of collective healing. The book is bound in a unique way and creates a parallel world of the past and the present, showing the silenced landscape interwoven with personal artefacts created by those left behind.
