This project is a direct translation of an essay film into a book. A typo-translation as Andrew Lister called it. The film is Lost Book Found by Jem Cohen.
Fully transcribed and containing every image of the entire film. This book tries to achieve the following. Invite the viewer into a retrospection about the notion of flanerie. The book contains two different narratives that crossover each other. One narrative deals with Jem Cohen, who is a flaneur himself wandering around the streets of New York in this film. The other narrative deals with other flanuers throughout the history. Guy Debord, Charles Baudelaire, Walter Benjamin, Robert Brownjohn, Eugene Atget … and many more are included in this parallel visual narrative.
