Carnet de visage" vol.1 exhibition by Jika

"Choosing portraiture means taking an interest in and honouring others. Reminding them of the beauty, grandeur, poetry and gods within themselves. We live in a society that tries too hard to diminish us, to trivialise us and to eradicate our spirituality. Through these portraits, I invoke the energy that must never be extinguished in each and every one of us. Jika 

The book is made up of 146 portraits from woodcuts hand-engraved by artist Jika and pressed by master printmaker Stéphane Guibaud. 300 copies of the book were produced by Escourbiac presses in south-west France.
