As its name indicates, + is the result of a sum, a work whose scenes, a priori unconnected, dialogue with each other from the mystery and poetics of chance to generate again and again new and surprising interpretations.


David Salcedo manages to take "street photography" to another level, questioning the limits of visual narrative through an open edition that values the reader's capacity for interaction, thus showing that the true creative act is his work process.

The book, spiral-bound and with all the pages split in half, tricks the eye with a diversity of photographs that can be combined in a single image through thousands of possible combinations, turning its reading into a trompe l'oeil, a constant surprise, and a game in which the reader will be irremediably trapped.


After winning the Nuevo Talento Fnac photography prize in 2015, + became one of the most eagerly awaited photobooks on the Spanish photography scene. But it has taken seven years of work to achieve the construction of this complex puzzle.

In the author's own words: "There were moments when I had the impression of being in front of a sea of images, and that same perception is the one that is prolonged in the sequence of the book".


The 66 photographs that make up the book + , when combined, form 1089 diptychs, 256 triptychs and 65,536 quadruptychs. These are figures that in a publication can be dizzying, astonishing, disorienting and surprising. But if they achieve all that, David Salcedo is achieving what he wants, as + he is trying to make the readers feel the same vertigo and illusions that the author felt during the process of editing the work. A tribute to that key moment that puts the author on the ropes and is slapped in the face at the same time by the composition, the technique, the subject and, in short, the strange presence that things acquire when they are photographed.


"A drop + a drop is not two drops, it is a bigger drop that is talking about the sea."
