The Secret Books

Photographs by Sean Kernan
Writings by Jorge Luis Borges

Skulls are etched with words that define a universe of infinite possibilities. Slain birds lie fallen on a page, blurring the clarity of scholastic meditations. Angry nails crucify one text, while another is seen as a window into the starry universe itself. These are just some of the remarkable images in The Secret Books, a new volume of pictures by the renowned photographer Sean Kernan, whose work uses Borges as a “guiding star” to navigate the space between the text and the imagination.

*I’ve been wanting to do something like this myself in some form or manner for some time, and I will, but this made me happy to have found.
