Synopsis:

Isolating these moments in his memory and attempting to analyze them much like a lens, he envisions "a haiku stripped of rhetoric that captures only what is in front of the camera." Yet, deprived of his sight, the photographer now must reconstruct his experiences as a series of affective snapshots, a diary of his emotions as they were frozen on this or that day. The result, then, is not the description of a remembered image, but of the emotional memory the image evokes. Joao Almino here gives us a trenchant portrait of an artist trying to close the gap between objective vision and sentimental memory, leafing through a catalog of his accomplishments and failures in a violent, artificial, universal city, and trying to reassemble the puzzle that was his life.

About the Author: Joao Almino is the author of five novels, of which The Five Seasons of Love and The Book of Emotions are available in English translation. He has taught at Berkeley, Stanford, the Autonomous National University of Mexico, and the University of Brasilia.

Liz taught mathematics for sixteen years across the UK from the Channel Islands to the North West of England in various primary and secondary schools. For the last fourteen years she has been a Senior Lecturer at the University of Cumbria (formerly St Martin s College) teaching mathematics at degree level, mathematics education with secondary and primary student teachers and supervising Masters students research into primary mathematics. Her Honours degree from Manchester University is in mathematics and education. She explored the use of IT as a tool for learning and teaching mathematics for a Masters from the University of Lancaster, and conducted research into mathematical perceptions for her PhD, also from the University of Lancaster. Liz has always taken a keen interest in how children learn mathematics and how adults, including teachers, perceive mathematics.
