Summary of project:

“Magic City #1 is a quirky publication. It’s a collaboration between photographers Daniel Milnor and Andrew Kaufmann, who spent two days shooting Miami before sending their images to designer Chloe Ferres, who was given the power to test her experimental book design hypotheses. ‘Magic City’ the first in a series. Is a book designed to be cut by the viewers, exploring the boundaries of print on demand technology and audience participation to create an individual and participatory photobook experience. This book invites the owner to finish the productions process, cutting certain pages to make whole images visible while destroying others.”
