Christina McBride & Roberto Bravo
Bound is a collaboration between Scottish film and photography artist Christina McBride and Mexican author Roberto Bravo. A combination travelogue and reflection on travel itself, Bound charts their journey together through Patagonia, Chile. Divided into three chapters, each section begins with entries from Bravo’s diary in which he follows in the footsteps of famous literary predecessors Bruce Chatwin and Pablo Neruda; McBride, in her analogue photographs, explores the interplay between travel and photography as a method of unsettling conventional perceptions and expectations. Through McBride’s eye, the extreme wonder and contradictions of Patagonia’s landscapes become a journey and a search into the possibilities afforded by photography itself. Designed in landscape format the book allows plenty of space around Bravo’s entries and McBride’s color and black-and-white photographs. Text by international recognized video artist Tacita Dean, friend and colleague of both McBride and Bravo, gives a personal introduction to their work.
