Nueva Galicia (New Galicia) is a documentary project by Iván Nespereira presented as a publication and a film piece.
The publication won the PHotoESPAÑA 2018 prize for the best Photo-book of the year in the self-published category. It includes a photo-book, a map and three notebooks.
Quadrichrome offset printed on Arcoprint plus a single colour risograph. It has a remarkable book cover: soft cover printed on rubber, wire-o bound.
Natural rubber was used for the cover to support the content of the photo-book, which is an exploration of the spread of the rubber tree from Brazil to England – and consequently the rest of the world – and the subsequent migration of a group of Europeans to the Amazon, drawn by the economic boom caused by rubber harvesting in the second half of the 18th century.
As you open the publication the tactile sensation, the “feel” of the “raw material”, circumvents convention and the result is an intense sensory experience.
