The Perpetual Tourists takes us on an incredible journey around the world. From the historical Camino de Santiago in Spain to the Three Gorges Dam Project in China. From a Cold War era Japanese Space Program to never seen before abandoned heritage in the South of Italy. In his book Rubio invites us to be part of his creative process for over the last 5 years, shining light on social, political or environmental issues from an alternative perspective.
The Perpetual Tourist features 178 pages and comes in a high-end 190gsm ProLine Pearl Photo paper. This paper gives the photographs a bright and gorgeous finish, closer to a photography portfolio than to a photo book.
To celebrate the conclusion of the project, we published the book Design Museum Dharavi 2016, which is part of our idea to create a model that in the future can be implemented in other similar settlements around the world. The book documents our exhibitions, events and work so far. It includes a series of essays, a manual with the ‘lessons learnt’, and a small catalogue showing our collection of objects. The book is entirely handmade, comes in a limited edition of a hundred copies and is available only via firstname.lastname@example.org
