Estamos Buscando A (We Are Looking For) was just named to the Paris Photo | Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Award shortlist. This is the last in a trio of books the Artist has made on the US|MX border, or perhaps better said, the grey area that encompasses the region, physically and psychologically. jdc Fine Art has made other recommendations of Turounet's work in the past; Tierra Brava, another Artit's Book, has been featured in this blog. Attention from Paris Photo and Aperture should underline the import of Turounet's work.
Due to the criticality of the narrative Turounet is addressing, we are offering this work to as broad an audience as possible. There are two incarnations of the book, a Trade Edition & Limited Edition, descriptions and pricing follow.
