"Tomorrow in the Periphery
By Pedro Arnal"

ILLUSTRATED
By Jack Oelmann Perez

These are Illustrations I have produced too Pedro Arnals piece of writing MAÑANA EN LA PERIFERIA "Tomorrow in the Periphery". This piece of text was sent to me by Bernardo Sepelana, who asked me to illustrate them.
It's a piece of writing that's full of memories from infancy, memories that sprout from an aroma and the senses. The story transports us to a past world, full of images, textures, tastes and smells that describe to us the two faces of reality in an impressionist way.
Here I have incorporated imagery from my childhood and drawings and patterns relating to the text to make collages, which I then made photograms from by making large negatives and playing around with them in the darkroom. 16x20 inches, each.
