Book Description: My photo book ‘Napoli’ reveals impressions which I have captured during one summer day in Italy. It shows my vision on the everyday life in a place like Naples, the accidental beauty of hushed moments, visual encounters in a buzzing heat. I was instantly fascinated by a noticeable body culture, by bursting adolescence but also became interested in the aspect of ageing in a place like this. The azure blue cover is printed on a transparent paper giving the book a quite skin-like, delicate feel. My black and white photographs are accompanied by text excerpts from Walter Serner’s Dadaist manifesto, ‘Last Loosening’ (1920):

“There was no time to be bored. One breathed at the top of the lungs, hunted, copulated, gorged, tussled, slept, swigged, swam and the day came gently to a close.

O, that the old instincts remain, and yet their corresponding vitalities wear off.

The last disappointment? When the illusion to be free of illusion, transpired as such.”

Book Description: Mile High Club follows Angela’s and my photo work of the summers of 2012-2014. Often placed on opposite ends of the photo spectrum content- and quality-wise by our peers, we’ve always felt we spoke a similar language with our images. We’re both natural collectors and so found it necessary to pool our often overlapping collections of photographs. We’d like to call the collections ongoing, our friendship one primary subject.
