A professional in communications is an archer that bends the bow and sends an arrow in search of the yellow dot at the centre of the target. An author, an artist, is an archer that bends the bow, shoots the arrow and paints the yellow dot where it lands.

EL PUNTO AMARILLO PHOTOBOOKS is an independent publisher created to develop our projects without middlemen in the form of limited editions, with some of the books numbered and signed.

Or in other words we paint the yellow dots ourselves.

El Punto Amarillo Fotolibros - La Habana. Tiempo d descuento

LA HABANA. TIEMPO DE DESCUENTO

Author: Pedro Coll
Prologue: Agustí Villaronga y Miguel Coyula
288 pages | 253 x 189 mm | Hardback with stitched spine
Limited edition of 500 copies, first 100 numbered and signed.

A young woman sitting on a rocking-chair, feet resting on a stool, lights a cigarette. From the window, cars from the fifties can be seen going along L Street in downtown Havana. The woman has a folded copy of the daily Granma on her lap with a headline announcing to the world the end of fifty-three years of bitter rivalry. The US and Cuba have re-established diplomatic relations. It is the 17th of September 2014. We could say that this photograph is the starting point of the book ‘La Habana. Tiempo de descuento’.

The story takes us into the streets of Havana and captures gestures and looks charged with the authenticity, seduction and nuances of an endless gallery of characters. ‘La Habana. Tiempo de descuento’ is a poetic allegory of this charismatic city, but above all it is one of those books that sticks to reality with beautifully told stories that appear and disappear again and again. It’s all there. Beauty, reason, lyricism and sorrow.

ANTÍPODAS

The meeting of Havana and Hong Kong in opposing mirrors at a distance of 10,000 kilometres. Cuba waiting for the US to end the blockade, Hong Kong doing its best to avoid being swallowed by China… There are as many similarities between both as there are differences.

NO PLACE TO HIDE

A world put together on the basis of imitation, everybody taking the same photos with the same filters in the same places. “Live your own adventure” has given way to “Live his own adventure”, someone else’s adventure. It is impossible to hide without being surrounded by everyday inputs.

Image

LA MIRADA PROMISCUA

An essay on eroticism and fantasies, on impossible stories, fleeting moments, on the ephemeral, narrated as a series of photographs. The historical epoch of photography typically represented by Duane MichAls is taken as the reference.

El Punto Amarillo Fotolibros - Geometría del instante

GEOMETRÍA DEL INSTANTE

Carefully selected images taken during journeys, assignments and personal projects, in which the author reflects on his personal manner of visualizing the search for that formal equilibrium within the action, which he defines as “geometry of the instant”. 

Image

TROMPE L'OEIL

None of these images have been digitally manipulated, although the contrast and chromatics have been adjusted, and they have been given the necessary “reserves” to balance light and shadows in the same way as positives are produced in a laboratory.
