Some Builders

  • Yannis La Macchia (Switzerland)

Somewhere in a world that could well be our own, in a setting that smacks of untamed savagery, men and women bustle about strange edifices. The visions of these builders paint the portrait of a society certainly no stranger to concrete, pollution, and electronics before some kind of seemingly radical change took place.

But between yesterday’s humanity and today’s, a single desire seems to have survived, a shared need: to build. Odd, as desires go, this creating and building. And what place is afforded the one who builds, the famous “builder”? This book mulls and addresses themes and imagery that call to mind very real and current issues relating to the environment, globalization, and progress.

A uniquely profound book that challenges readers and the very notion of narrative, by an author utterly devoted to his chosen medium, whose love for drawing—process and result—shines forth from every page.
