A project I worked on earlier this year, Sans Soleil is a 64 page book inspired by the Japanese aesthetics of Wabi Sabi and the imperfect, impermanent, and incompleteness of Beauty. Borrowing the words from Chris Marker’s Sans Soleil (1983). I had a lot of fun with this book!

‘Ah well… after all, history only tastes bitter to those who expected it to be sugar coated.’

‘All women have a built-in grain of indestructibility. And men’s task has always been to make them realize it as late as possible. African men are just as good at this task as others. But after a close look at African women I wouldn’t necessarily bet on the men.’

This last one comes from one of my favourite scenes in the film.
