Affinities: A Book of Images


Affinities is a carefully curated visual journey illuminating connections across more than two thousand years of image-making. The images are arranged in a single captivating sequence which unfurls according to a dreamlike logic, through a play of visual echoes and evolving thematic threads: marbled endpapers meet tattooed stowaways; fireworks explode beside deep-sea coral. At once an art book, a sourcebook, and a kaleidoscopic visual poem, Affinities is a unique and enthralling publication that will offer something different on each visit.
