by Johannes Groht
14,8 x 21 cm, 348 pages, open thread-stitching

Comes with full colour C-Print, 14,3 x 20,3 cm, hand-numbered and signed on the back side, in glassine cover
68 € (plus shipping costs)

"Black lines, meandering, gathering and knotting, winding to signs, faces, and landscapes – calligraphy? Rock art? Abstract expressionism? The black lines are marks of repair works on the streets of a swiss alpine valley, called the Schams. Where frost and heat afflict the tarmac, the cracks get fixed with hot asphalt. These repainted fractures are isolated from photographs and remain as abstract forms."

"The photographs presented in this book are just a short segment of a never-ending project I started a few years ago — and still in progress — about Japan as seen through its railways. Humans are just robots now. Locomotives have faces, characters, appear dazzled, anesthetized by the snow, exhausted by endless trips… A (kind of) photographic homage to Kraftwerk’s T.E.E. album."
