MY HUSBAND & ME ME & MY WIFE

This book was published in a limited edition of 250 copies. It is possible to remove single sheets without damaging the book. Each picture bears on the back the photographer’s signature and a number, which means that Nico Ferrando has affixed his signature 14,250 times and that this book is also a compendium of 57 fine art prints - a must-have for art collectors.

MY HUSBAND & ME, ME & MY WIFE is about identity, marriage, relationships, genetics, gender, sexual orientation, commitment, about youth and old age, digital manipulation and definitely about love. The persons shown are mainly married couples from 12 different countries, representing various ethnic groups and backing the project by their names.  Some of them have been together for a whole lifetime, others only for some months. Each couple was photographed naked. The pictures were digitally manipulated and mixed, making them blur or seemingly disappear, until one can barely tell them apart. These pictures are mesmerizing; there is something marvellous in them, a feeling of fascinating strangeness, of both familiarity and awkwardness, challenging our prejudices and our ideas of two individuals that belong together and are yet entities of their own.
