Cherine Fahd | Apókryphos



The 2019 winner of the Australia and New Zealand Photo Book Award., Apókryphos is a deeply moving study of the ways in which grief and mourning are visualised, experienced and witnessed. 

Using image and text Cherine Fahd reproduces 24 photographs taken in 1975 of her grandfather’s funeral and burial. Through annotations, footnotes and redacted text she forensically yet intimately guides the reader through the mysteries of the event captured, offering a literary response to the photographs and to the unknown status of the photographer.

Apókryphos continues Fahd’s interest in the book as artwork. The artist's intimate selection is a unique response to rare photographs of grief and mourning. The publication includes two creative texts as a ‘call and response’ between Cherine Fahd and Daniel Mudie Cunningham, Director of Programs, Carriageworks, Australia.
