Mr. & Dr. is a photobook aimed for children and youngsters that explores the notion of the unknown through images and text.
This photobook is an appropriation of a classic horror story, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson that challenges the overriding illustrative relation between text and images in books for children. Photographs are unexpected, dark, ambiguous and create a vague yet fraught relation with the words that rejects fixed definitions.
Mr. & Dr. is a journey, through words and images, to the unimaginable, to what we do not understand and consequently, we fear.
