    Irina Chmyreva, PhD. To make such a bright color design for colorful portraits is a big attempt, and I feel it is a very successful realization. The ornaments and the staged portraits, pure solitude colors and exact format of the book and its construction - they are working all together. And the material form of the book can make the spectator happier. It is a great job.

In the Isthmus of Tehuantepec - Mexico - Zapotec women are known for their independence, strength and beauty. Their costume is a central element of their indigenous identity and is a symbol of fighting spirit. Delphine Blast highlights these women with her series of portraits. She used Mexican oilcloths to frame these unique compositions. The book is a prolongation of Blast's work. It is packaged in a flexible card sleeve. Some of the interior pages of the book are cut with a square window to allow the reader to play with frames and patterns. It contains a C-print signed by the author.
