Parallel Existences. The Notarial Archives: A Photographer's Inspiration

Photographer: Alex Attard.  Editors: Joan Abela & Emanuel Buttigieg.  Publishers: Kite Group, Malta, 2018

“Alex Attard, in the Notarial Archives, discovered unbearable beauty in decay, harmony in disorder and energy in detritus. A photographer who shuns what meets the eye and finds relevance in what the eye ignors or rejects. A photographer of a parallel existence, the poet of junked reality. Alex Attard, more particularly his ground-breaking work, has inspired a number of toilers in the aesthetic and philosophical vineyards to translate into words the aethereal language of that haunting spirit."

"Joan Abela and Emanuel Buttigieg have converged their dynamisms to bring about the first collection of essays inspired by, or related to, the Notarial Archives. A harvest of original works all anchored to the res gestae of our ancestors, mostly bilateral contracts and unilateral wills; in other words, the irrepressible interactions of life and the inevitability of death.”  - Judge Giovanni Bonello
