Andrew Zornoza’s Where I Stay reviewed at elimae

 

At elimae, John Findura reviews Andrew Zornoza’s Where I Stay.

Says Findura:

Andrew Zornoza’s marvelous first book is hard to pin down. With dated and place-notated prose on one page and a captioned photo on the facing one, it seamlessly shifts its delivery from straight-ahead to a possibly unreliable photographer with captions that either expand on the text, or further question the reality and relationship between prose and picture…

Zornoza manages to capture that wanderlust that has caught anyone who ever read On The Road, or realized you can get on Route 80 West and drive from New York to San Francisco. It’s sad and searching, filled with the desire for experience for reasons we may not even know. As Antoine de St. Exupery wrote in Le Petit Prince, “Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.” And Andrew Zornoza does it with style and grace.
