The Smoke and Mirrors book is now available. Smoke and Mirrors is a series of photographs shot over three years by Miami-based artist Christiaan Lopez-Miro at Hollywood’s famed Magic Castle, New York’s Monday Night Magic and Magic on the Beach in Miami.
The images grant the viewer entrance into an otherwise inaccessible world where conjures spend countless hours honoring their craft and practicing sleights in the attempt to recreate a moment of impossibility.
As a magician and member of the Magic Castle, Lopez-Miro was able to obtain access. The result is a tapestry of dark images, intimate in nature and at times confrontational.
The book can be previewed and purchased here: http://www.gustoartculture.com/withgusto/smokeandmirrors.html or you can contact me directly in order to obtain your copy.

Shame they couldn't have come up with a different name.

It's the name that the series has had since its inception. It has been widely exhibited and just recently published as a limited first edition artist book with only 100 copies printed. Couldn't have gone with another name as it wouldn't have been recognized.

That may be. It's just a shame it's not a unique, distinguishing title.
