There are many words and many interpretations for describing the human appearance. Descriptions for alter egos, incarnations, the human form, the images in the flesh, a personification, an impersonation or computerized avatar. All portray a surface but not the soul. I’ve coloured the pages with black-blue fountain pen ink. The page numbers are stamped with a numerator. The images are hand stitched and hard cover bound over tapes. The dimensions of the book are 90 x 140 mm and has a variable thickness. Therefore book doesn’t close properly. That’s a little bit the price you pay for a book made “alla prima”. Or better, it’s a charming bonus.

Resumé Pt.2

Some detail pictures of the “Resumé” book. Hand-bound over pink-orange dyed cloth ribbons. The signatures are sewn with orange thread and the photo’s are from my greenhouse archive. These are laser-printed over postcards of Albrecht Dürer’s alphabet, and stitched back to back together with a Singer from 1910. The poem is rubber stamped. 

Dorothy Parker was a master of the alphabet and sharp like a cactus to defense herself.

Preto 5

With contributions from Anna Block [Russia], Cato Lein [Sweden] and Emi Anrakuji [Japan] Preto likes to present, meet and connect photographers in this unravelling photo magazine. It is showing a mixture based on the pictures (kindly made available by the photographers) into a new surprising story. In this sense Preto is not a portfolio. There is no theme or text inside, the images and their juxtapositions on page tell the story to the reader on their own.
