The First Day of Good Weather is an exceptional book project. Mortarotti possesses a visual acuity that he uses to great effect, evoking a set of emotions in a sequence of images that deploys the opacity of photography (the counterpoint of its claim to truth).
The book itself is very beautiful assembled. The printing and layout are especially strong.
