"a walk in a dream" new photobook by Toni Ricart


I'm proud to announce my new photobook, a walk in a dream.

This is a walk driven by the pursuit of intimate beauty, trying to discover surprising shapes in hidden corners of the garden. The game between focus and depth of field turns backgrounds into unexpected geometric patterns dancing in dreamlike atmospheres. The walk through the garden becomes a walk in a dream.
