Mejor Vista General: West of Del Prado explores the photographic power to embower the viewer in a displacing illusion - both in the realm of photography and bookmaking in general.
The arch of the project is based on a stereoscopic view made by the artist which pictures a particular cove in Southern California. In order to create a seemingly comprehensive document of this pictured location, additional photographs were created from a myriad of angles, culled from a myriad of sources (from a myriad of time periods). The glut of resulting repetitious imagery at once extends the canvas of the original vantage point to the brink of immersion while dissolving it to the verge of absurdity.
