Impressions Gallery


The Factory of Dreams // Stefan Ruiz

Publication price £3.50

This 36 page full colour publication features Ruiz’s large scale colour photographs; capturing the stars, sets and melodrama of ‘telenovelas’ – Latin American soap operas.

This world of beautiful women, handsome men and rags-to-riches stories belies a subtext of social aspiration and entrenched racial hierarchies.

The book also includes the essay Cinderella grows up: a tale of telenovelas by Pippa Oldfield, Curator.

Edited by Anne McNeill.

The Factory of Dreams is the second publication in the imPRESS series of fully illustrated pocket size books, published to accompany key work shown at the Gallery. These books contain insightful essays by artists, critics and curators. These limited edition publications will build over the coming years into a collectable set.
