The inward space is the stage for ZONA, the new photobook by Portuguese artist Nuno Moreira. ZONA plunges deeply into the unconscious by visually giving form to recurrent dreams and explorations on interior landscapes. Similar to theatre, or even cinema, the narrative of the book follows a live-performance shot in Japan and is somewhat similar to a dream experience – one feels both familiarity, intimacy and strangeness. It is however this combination of mystery and ambiguity that makes these black & white photos all the more engaging. ZONA shows Moreira investigating in shadows and discovering new means by which to speak about thoughts and the realms of the psyche. The result is a sensuous, quiet and dark book, delivering images with a memorable cinematic quality.Comprised of photographs and exclusive texts written by José Luís Peixoto in three languages (English / Portuguese / Japanese), ZONA comes in a beautiful cloth bound limited-edition of 300 copies.
