Luisa Rabbia: Travels with Isabella

Turin-born, Brooklyn-based Luisa Rabbia produced this delightful book of collage--inspired by archival photographs purchased by Isabella Stewart Gardner from local photographers while traveling through China in 1883--during her residency at Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Rabbia manipulates the photographs with drawings made via digital projection.
