By Dayna McLeod
“A feast for the heart, head, and soul,” is how Dayna McLeod describes La Fête, the perfect book to look at in the context of deprivation and isolation caused by the pandemic. The hundred photographs gathered from a call for submissions from Quebec and Brazilian artists are documentary, portraiture, and candid images. Freely associated but carefully organized, they offer a “gateway to feelings,” “a journey of party places and people,” “party and reverie ... that pull on our memories, longing, and fear of missing out.” Although an audio application gives the images a sound environment, the essays give them meaning by teasing out the political momentum of the theme.
