If you've seen it all, close your eyes - Coco Capitán


“If you’ve seen it all, close your eyes” presents extracts from a decade of artist Coco Capitán’s handwritten notebooks. Coco Capitán has always scribbled down her thoughts – everywhere, all the time – often on scraps of paper that have filled notebook after notebook. From her first day in London in 2010 until now, and as she travels the world on photography assignments, Coco Capitán’s writings grant an insight into her free and instinctive creative process. Playful aphorisms and short poems address an array of issues with hints of humour and irony. She combines the serious with the mundane as she shares in her first text-based book social, metaphorical or sentimental moments with her witty tone and distinctive hand.

London-based artist Coco Capitán (born 1992, Spain) earned a BA in Fashion Photography at the London College of Fashion followed by an MA in Photography at the Royal College of Art. She  works  across  a  range  of  genres  including  photography,  painting,  mural,  text,  video  and  installation.  Capitán has  shot  campaigns  for  world-renowned  fashion  brands  and  magazines  including Vogue,  Dazed, Gucci, APC and Mulberry. Her first solo institutional exhibition was held at the Daelim Museum in South Korea (2018). Her second is in March 2019 at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris.
