Pequenas Melodías (LP)
300 numbered copies, 180 gr black vinyl, spot varnish on 350 gr paper heavy sleeve. Pequeñas Melodias is the result of a dialog between the photographers Albarrán Cabrera (Angel Albarrán & Anna Cabrera) and the composer / musician Federico Durand initiated by IIKKI between December 2017 and August 2018. Albarrán Cabrera are the photographers Anna Cabrera (b. 1969, Sevilla) and Angel Albarrán (b. 1969, Barcelona) who work together as a collaborative duo based in Barcelona. "There is a gap between reality and what we understand as real. And photography lies in the frontier between the real and unreal, the true and the false. So it helps us to “see” what is hidden from us. (…) We use a wide range of processes and materials. Some of these processes are the result of the combination of several old photographic processes or they can be a mixture of new and old ones. Thus we use, platinum, palladium, cyanotype or gelatine silver processes. But we have also invented and developed new processes, as it is the case of the one we use for our colour prints: pigments, Japanese paper and gold leaf. All this serves just one single purpose: we want to have far more parameters to play with the viewer than just the image. The texture, colour, finishing, tones; even the border of a print can give extra information to the viewer. And you can have a better control over this information just using the correct process and materials for a specific image..." (Albarrán Cabrera)
