Book

Lens Strokes I, is a forty four page photographic book that is a collaboration between photographer, Jorge L. Torres and prominent Chinese author, Yuan Miao. As she felt inspired by Jorge's images, she wrote uplifting messages that accompany each photograph. Her words appear in the original Chinese and are translated into English on each page.

The layout and design were conceived by Sara Casabella, a great spanish designer. Covered with a distinctive Japanese paper, the pages are heavy weight and the German ink was engraved in silver and black on a German press which gives the book a unique finish. Binding was done by hand creating all together a finely crafted work of art.

The book was launched to the public in May of 2008 with a limited edition of 800 units. Each one is signed, dated and numbered by the author. No future editions will be made.
