Look Into Me Now : A Book of Abandoned Things
Look into me now Illustrations from the book "Look into me now." "Look into Me Now" is visual story about the memories that we hold as objects of our past. Not surprisingly, all the drawings are rendered in black and white, mingled with shades of indigo. It is the same as with our memories. Time has wiped away the acuteness of feelings and novelty of expression. Blurred images of the objects dusted by the winds of nostalgia are all that is left for us to keep.
