Selected by writer and curator Susan Bright: "Moisés is an unusual book. Firstly it attempts to make visual something that is completely unrepresentable- a whole jumble of repressed emotions and her dead father.
That is a pretty audacious starting point for any photography project. It utilizes staged strategies which is unusual when dealing with issues of death and dying, as the subject tends to be (but not always) documentary based.
And then there is the book itself- small, unassuming, clever pacing and smart use of repetition. There are very few books which I find as compelling. This is partly due to the structure of the book and partly because of the simplicity of the pictures that have a powerful jolt to deal with very real human emotions without ever being sentimental or overplayed. It just surprises me every time I look at it. The old men, why they wanted to be photographed, the cardigan seen again and again and there in the middle of it the artist. It´s extraordinary. It´s also strange, sad, mysterious and at times sinister. No other book this year has had even remotely come close to the power of Moisés for me. "
