About The Book

Another Eternity is photographer Camilo Ramirez’s first monograph. This publication is a collaboration between the artist and Brian Nolte of BOAAT Press. This book project embodies over 10 years of photographic work and includes afterwords by photographer Stephen DiRado and Paula Tognarelli, Director of the Griffin Museum of Photography. Each book is completely and uniquely hand assembled, featuring a handmade paper cover, laser etched title, velum and die cut pages, and finished with a Japanese stab binding.


About The Work

Although he has lived with Polio since he was a toddler, my father began showing symptoms of Parkinson’s disease nearly ten years ago. My mother had been fighting her Multiple Sclerosis for nearly ten years at that point. They once worked together in Physical Therapy caring for patients in their own homes, but now they are mostly immobile and care for each other with help from myself and my siblings.

Their long diseases and treatments have been familiar companions in my family and I believe they have helped make us seekers for an understanding of what lies beyond the body and the present. Be it religious, scientific and even metaphysical beliefs, there has been a wide and open search for ways to reason and hence contain the chaos that these diseases brought. I find myself weighing the mythologies we’ve explored over years against the realities of caring for sick loved ones. Certain aspects of their abilities and disabilities, the physical distance between us, their diseases, our home and the emblems of my family's history have become touchstones for my photographs and for my understanding of all the changes.

About Ordering

When ordering please select the Another Eternity Flat Rate shipping method ($5.00). The book is larger than what we usually send out so it costs a little more to ship.

“In Another Eternity his photographs articulate expressions of unrest and uncertainty for the future due to his parent’s gradually declining health. In images like Windshield, Charms and Remains that border on the abstract, the objects in the photographs seem suspended in time as if held in a protective state readying against the inevitability of the flux ahead.”

Paula Tognarelli

“Difficult as one can imagine, growing up in an enigmatic irreducibly complex world, Camilo indiscriminately thrives to make his art. He is able to make connections through his photographs that are both accepting and loving towards his family, while depicting the darkness that permeates their lives and transforming present evidence of failing health into hauntingly sublime imagery. Camilo, over a life time has developed the arcane ability to capture through his camera, with great substance, the non-literal evidence he witnesses through his mother and father. It is a visceral and empathetic point of view that comes from a son watching his parents and family change. It is also mostly transcendent, looking downward at his father and mother, bringing into focus an abundance of information throughout the frame, leaving no room for distractions. His approach is almost always from the threshold of an intimate distance—just close enough for Camilo to whisper without getting in the way.”
