Franco Esteve's Devils Within: You'll never see smoking in the same way again

Franco Esteve's Devils WithinFor those of you that have been following my photography projects, or who've seen some of my photos on Flickr or elsewhere, now you can find the Devils Within collection in the book, Franco Esteve's Devils Within, available through the Blurb publishing service. Franco Esteve's Devils Within is an exploration within that spatial interaction that occurs within our lungs, alive, between body and nature, between the smoke and the cell. Its visions look for those demons that exist within us, within ourselves, within the smoker. Each person has their own interpretation, their own understanding, their own vision of that which exists within. In many ways, the images serve as a rorschach test of sorts, and though many see the things which I understood are there, others see their own visions, their own thoughts, their own demons and emotions. It's real. It's there… inside the smoker.

Get your 3D glasses ready!

The book utilizes anaglyph stereo images (red and cyan) to better convey the depth of its photos, like looking through a window into the smoke, and though it's recommended to have 3D glasses available to fully experience the depth of that within the smoke, they are certainly not a requisite (The 2D versions of the photographs are also included). If you need glasses (red and cyan), you can get them from Amazon (USA) here or Amazon (UK) here. These are the most economical glasses and are often given away. You might even have one laying about the house.

People are often surprised to learn that the images in this book and collection are actual photographs and not created through other means or doctored to create the shapes and forms (except to create the 3D window, depth efface in the 3D versions in the book, of course). They are as I saw them through the lens, but I certify that no demons were harmed during their capture. So take a moment to look at them slowly, carefully, deliberately exploring their landscape from up close and from afar. Enjoy the experience of peering into the soul of the smoker. :)

Franco Esteve's Devils WithinI sincerely hope you enjoy the book and the images within. It's currently available in a highly economical 7 X 7 inch square format, and has a full preview available so you can peruse the book before purchase. You can get it here. It makes a great gift with some 3D glasses! :) You can also buy framed prints from this collection @Imagekind here.
