PIN-UP 2018 - REBUS PLAY: A BOOK OF VISUAL PUZZLES BY ARTIST BELA BORSODI

The photographer Bela Borsodi is based in New York, but his surrealist wit and dark sense of humor are deeply indebted to the sensibilities of his native city Vienna. For his latest project Borsodi brings his signature flare for dark and sexy composition to rebus puzzles, a style of brainteaser that dates back to at least the Middle Ages. Borsodi’s lavishly printed new book Unicorn features 40 pages full of visual puns, per say, that use equations of pictures and letters to graphically spell out words. PIN–UP called him up in his studio to provide the back story to five of the photographs from the book.
