COLLECTION OF STORIES

MIRAMAR

by Pedro Meyer

About

How did the name of the Miramar collection come about?

Miramar is for me, looking at infinity.

Have you ever had to be in front of the sea and not think about infinity?
That sea collects all your fantasies of the past, present, and future.
Hence my idea for the name of the collection.

Pedro Meyer, september 2022

Why is the content of these books important?

The collection of books has a testimonial value that accompanies the other narratives that exist and that can be useful for everyone, contributing something new to visual culture.

Why 30 books?

These topics compile most of the artist’s photographic work from the 1950s to the present.

What will the books look like?

All the books in the collection are 12″ x 12″, a generous size for viewers. When opened wide, it becomes a 24″ x 12″ view, panoramic, and suitable for good viewing.

Pedro Meyer

Pedro Meyer (1935) is a photographer and visual artist who, at 87, continues to innovate. His collection reaches more than 1 million images of the most diverse themes of human activity.

Known for his contributions to the development of the Latin American photographic industry, he has never stopped addressing universal photographic themes throughout the transition from analog to digital.

The Miramar collection that includes this series of books covers the work and life of Pedro Meyer, where the author seeks to create a narrative as diverse as the very experiences of society. The transition of photography through technological changes that influence both content and form constitute an essential part of the author’s concerns.
