Post Tropical

Talisa Lallai's artist book Post Tropical follows the concept of a travel magazine: it offers unique photo spreads of tropical objects, interspersed with critical essays and reprints of travel advertisements. 

Lallai uses both found images and her own photography to point to the presence of colonialism in the contemporary Global North.

The viewer is confronted with impressive images of animals, plants, historical travel slides and stamps, making clear that in the campaign of conquest by the West, photography has just as much to answer for as other art forms.
