Editorial RM presents The Random Series –berliner trato, romananzo & madrileño trip–, a photographic project carried out by Miguel Ángel Torne- ro (b. 1978 in Baeza, Spain) over a period of four years in Berlin, Rome, and Madrid. Now enriched with additional material, it is presented in this book that defies conventional classifications.
During his stay in each city, Tornero photographed his daily activities intense- ly and instinctively, accumulating a series of images that would provide the raw material for the final digital collages included in the volume. Curiosity and instinct prevailed in his approach to photography.
In the process of creating these unsettling collages, Tornero used a glitch in a software that was not programmed to sew together apparently unrelated images. The final result is largely left to chance.
In the book, this approach is expanded and intensified. First of all, Carlos Fernández-Pello’s text is itself a collage, which also –in a process parallel to that of the creation of the images– has been manipulated, translated, and mercilessly retranslated into different languages by Google Translate.
The page layout has also been done randomly and, before being bound, the signatures were shuffled again, so that we might speak of a deconstruct- ed book, each copy of which is practically unique.
