El juego de la madalena is Julieta Averbuj’s first book. She talks about the construction of memories and memory as a changing path full of detours. “They called me one noon in December 2017 to tell me that my father had left. In Buenos Aires, during the following days I dedicated myself to looking very closely at the albums in his house. I then felt the need to make a book to honor him, being the east the object through which he also expressed himself. I hope that the reader lives the book as an experience. That whoever has it in his hands is encouraged to look at it from near and far, to touch it, to look for combinations and find relationships. It’s a book that invites the viewer to play. And I think that’s the best possible tribute to my father, inventor of the cupcake game and many others.”
Fuego Books is a publishing house located in Murcia, a city in the southeast of Spain. We are two brothers, Ángela and Gustavo Alemán. We love photography and books. We believe in the photobook as an ideal support to talk about the world and the people who inhabit it, to tell open stories and to evoke complex emotions. We want to make this fire grow and we will feed it with beautiful books, dangerous books, books that burn
