Photographer Tony O’Shea documented the sale of turkeys on Dublin’s Mary’s Lane between 1990-93. Then, one year, he went back and the market was gone, most likely a victim to updated food regulations. This book is a collection of photographs from those years.

On Healing Faith is a brief project developed by Ana Cuba within the frame of a Master’s Degree in Art Direction from the ECAL in Lausanne. Confined between a quote by a scientist on miracles and another one by an astronomer on science, Ana displays a series of scrupulously selected images that present a wide range of alternative therapies such as chromotherapy, homeopathy, magnotherapy or Reiki. With a vision that delicately balances between respect and irony, aesthetics and discourse, Ana offers the observer an open door to critical positioning, saving for him/her an uncomfortable place in which to decide whether to stay at surface level or immerse him/herself totally in the subject.

Ana Cuba is a young and promising photographer from Zaragoza, Spain.

With its new “Cuadernos” collection, Terranova wants to bring to light a series of minor but nonetheless relevant works. Projects that might be deemed too brief to become books but are too brilliant not to deserve to appear on paper and get rescued from the black hole of periodical publications and on-line contents. Terranova is a small publishing house from Barcelona directed by Luis Cerveró and supervised by designer and art director Ana Domínguez.
