After publishing almost three thousand images on her profile, artist Gabriela Machado saw her work transformed into a book coedited by Editora Madalena and Editora Terceiro Nome and become a sales highlight at the last edition of Paris Photo, in November 2014. The 211 selected images make up Rever.
In Paris her work caught the attention of the event director, Julien Frydman, who was surprised and pleased to see a photography book with Instagram images. Frydman had complained that “a large blank space at the event was the absence of books dedicated to Instagram”. The following day, visiting the Livraria Madalena stand, Frydman corrected his mistake when he saw the newly launched book. He declared, as he leafed through the publication, “This is the first Instagram- artbook”.
Rever brings day-to-day images that reveal the author’s intimacy with the visual arts. They demonstrate a sensitive gaze that deftly plays with shade and texture, building a palette of colors and an edition of coherent and plastic images. “Gabriela’s work has a chromatic aspect which attracts attention. This is an authorial book, without the vices carried by an experienced photographer, and it builds itself precisely within a book format. Gabriela begins to examine her own work by means of photographs,” declares photographer Claudia Jaguaribe who, together with designer Mariana Lara, is responsible for the book’s image editing.
