Black Books

First of all, I would like to introduce an amusing new book in the black series: The Missing Pictures, a spin-off product inspired by pending copyright issues. For background information and a book preview please visit the printers’ bookstore (click button below).
Softcover, 21×13 cm, 40 pages, 6 €

Grey Books

There are also five new titles in the Other People’s Photographs series: Airports, Buddies, Digits, Red, and Size Matters.
Hardcover, 18×18 cm, 36 pages, 32 photographs, 36 € each

White Books

There’s a new book in the white series, too: Bilder von der Straße, Band I. The project Pictures from the Street has been an ongoing endeavour since 1982 and has seen me reclaim over 900 lost or abandoned photographs. The collection has been exhibited widely but only once in its entirety and this is the first time it is printed as a complete set, published within four volumes. Volume One is now available for purchase. Volumes Two, Three and Four will follow later this year and next year.
Hardcover, 25×20 cm, 240 pages, 72 €

New Prices

Due to a rise in printing prices I had to abandon my simple but beautiful pricing scheme for the black and for the white books. As a result, one book is more expensive now, some books are cheaper and some remain unchanged. The grey books are not affected by the new prices. You find detailled information on the respective pages of this website.

New York Art Book Fair

I’ll be presenting my books at the New York Art Book Fair this year. The fair will be held at PS1 Contemporary Art Center from October 2–4 with a preview on October 1st.
