"With a gentle hand the most frantic of daily activities, that of parcel deliveries, is slowed. The ubiquitous Ford Transit or 'white van' is photographed in close up to make a mini-typology of patterns created on the van doors. Here, every mark, scratch and smear is recorded and compared offering a joyful analysis of these mini histories. Temporary abstractions captured and in all likelihood never seen again."

Martine Derks & Xavier Fernández Fuentes - Everybody's Card

60 pages
30.5 x 19.5 cm / 12 x 7,6 inches
Edition: 700
Printing: Offset, FM Raster plates

"Everybody's Card is a form study that comments on the generic within 'album' photography. Avoiding the use of personal imagery, intimate photographs become generic due to small interventions; collage, modified poker cards and excerpts from magicians' handbooks are combined to create a narrative that compares a deck of playing cards with any collection of photographs found in a traditional photo album."

Edition of 255 (Hand-numbered)

“Hello, Skater Girl” is a photography book documenting a year of following eight girl skateboarders. The inspiration came from the desire to document something familiar, yet with a small tweak. Seeing girls skateboarding isn’t necessarily unusual, but it is perhaps unexpected. The photography captures their personalities as much as their performance as skaters.

Karl-Johan Stigmark - Antonyms

Karl-Johan Stigmark
64 pages
11.0 x 14.8 cm
Edition: 1000
type of printing: Offset

"Antonyms is a small book with a thick cardboard cover that showcases colored photographs and minimal text describing/titling modestly juxtaposed scenarios. The subject matter - a thumbtack on a wall, a note taped to the door, dirty dishes in the sink - is either composed by the artist or captured in its true and found form. Stigmark captures small moments by transcending various objects’ significance, their relationship to one another, and their function in our lives."

"Another life, of the city at nightfall. Another soul, of one who watches the night. I walk uncertainly and allegorically, unreally sentient. I’m like a story that someone told, and so well was it told that I took on just a hint of flesh at the beginning of one of the chapters of this novel that’s the world: ‘At that moment a man could be seen walking slowly down So-and-so Street.’ What do I have to do with life? - fernando pessoa"
