A NEW BOOK BY EDGAR MARTINS
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


Following a successful launch at Paris Photo 2016Siloquies and Soliloquies on Death, Life and Other Interludes is now available for sale. 
'Over a period of three years, Edgar Martins took more than one thousand photographs and scanned more than three thousand negatives from the National Institute of Legal Medicine and Forensic Sciences' (INMLCF) vast and extraordinary archives. A significant number of these images depict forensic evidence, particularly weapons and objects used in crimes and suicides, as well as crime scenes, death masks, projectiles, suicide letters and activities inherent to the work of the pathologist. However, alongside these photographs, Edgar Martins also began to recover images from his own archive and produce new photographs on other subjects, intended as a visual, narrative and conceptual counterpoint. The project sits precisely within this counterpoint between images, imaginations and imagery relating to death and the dead body, as an interstitial realm, an interlude, between art and non-art, between past and present, between reality and fiction' (Sérgio Mah).
Siloquies and Soliloquies on Death, Life and Other Interludes is Martins' most accomplished body of work to date, marking a clear departure from his default methodology. It adopts a hybrid approach encompassing fictional and documentary imagery, previously unseen archive material such as medical, forensic and newspaper photographs, appropriation of historical images and carefully researched text that taps into the scholarship of several field experts.
