Description of book: Flood Music is a sort of visual musical album, with images in place of lyrics and layout shifts in place of sounds. It could be called traveling music, as it lyrically pulls together moments and places of road trips through Minnesota, Nebraska and Louisiana over the span of a few years.

Description of book: The first book of photographs by Nico Krijno “celebrates colour and pattern,” according Mutsuko Ota. (Some of these images have been published in an issue of Smoke Room magazine dedicated to the work of Nico Krijno presented in The Photobook Review 006) Nico Krijno is interested in still lifes, whether the result of his discoveries – a wire fence damaged; the remains of a structure long-lost-or whether created in his studio, where he assembles irregular piles of rubbish colorful to photograph them. Nico Krijno bends and distorts human subjects on a variety of tests, by splashing paint, dispersing them in the landscape or-if all else fails, bringing them together in Photoshop so absurd. The relatively simple design of the book reinforces the sense of chaos without it dominates, with pages in both matte and shiny and texts inserted on small leaflets and a detachable poster.
