From the introduction to the book: ‘Cupido stresses the fleetingness of existence in the process of genesis, metamorphosis and disappearance, as well as focuses on the symbolic correspondences between earth and body. The ephemeral is also expressed through the moonlit landscapes and the dusk, that transitional zone in between the harsh light of day and the depths of the night. Coincidentally, ‘ephemerae’ refers to temporary printed matter. Cupido’s well-crafted prints, however, promise anything but short-livedness, yet invite us to meditate on the fragility of life, the interconnectedness of humans and non-humans, and the silence that is at the heart of every word and image.’ – Taco Hidde Bakker Paul Cupido was born on the Dutch island Terschelling in 1972. In 2017, Cupido graduated cum laude from the Fotoacademie Amsterdam with the first installment of his ongoing multimedia project Searching for Mu. He was awarded an artist’s residency at the Belfast Photo Festival 2017 and the Hariban Jurors’ Choice Award in Japan.
