Throughout the trip, the only consistent form of structure was the company of one another. Time became elastic and weeks departed from what our knowledge of what a “week” meant. As a result, we have collected an array of photographs which emote our sense of constant displacement yet express a deep love of travel and discovery.—Yael Malka and Cait Oppermann
After their recent graduation from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn-based photographers Yael Malka and Cait Oppermann backpacked for 70 days through Turkey, Morocco and several countries in Europe. The photos they took during that time are now collected in their self-published book Sea Blues.
Filled with idiosyncratic extractions from the artists’ journey as well as portraits of one another, Sea Blues is a collaboration between friends. These are notes from the road, a traveler’s handbook that allows the viewer to share in the amazing freedom of summery vagabonding in strange lands.
A book launch will take place at Molasses Books in Brooklyn on May 17, 2013.
