Efímeros. By Jose Guerrero. Text by Bernard Plossu, Julio Llamazares, José Muñoz. Caja San Fernando, 2006. 111 pp., illustrated throughout, 25x26cm.

[Efímeros is Spanish for ephemeral.]

Book description:

" ‘Everything flows; and with it all, life too passes and there is nothing we can do to stop it’ (Heraclitus).

Birth and death, construction-destruction, rural and urban, memory and oblivion.

In these spaces that do not exist, chrysali of opposites, I found the image of an early obsession with time; that unstoppable language of concrete and asphalt that relegates the past to the recesses of memory; to the edges of the city."
