It has been a busy year since an essay on the concave city corner won the Photobook Week Aarhus Dummy Award in 2018. A long but interesting and satisfying process has passed to create a published book from the dummy. After learning what to ask for, KOPA was chosen as the printing house. This was followed by wet proofing, empty dummy checking and changing design details to match the offset printing process. Chief curator of PWA, Moritz Neumuller, helped overlook the printing and Raimundas Austinkas performed colour separations. We were very well prepared so everything went smoothly on the printing day.
The book was presented at Photobook Week Aarhus 2019 last week with an exhibition at Dokk1, the main public library, curated by Jesper Rasmussen. We also organised a psychogeographical walking tour in the city, comprising 14 concave corners for people to experience first hand. You can find the digital version of the flyer here. It is still possible to visit Aarhus and let the corners show you the city in a unconventional way. Anything can happen during your walk. And if you are in Aarhus, you can also pop into Galleri Image and get a copy of the book. More photographs (credit: Emily Beresford) of the whole weekend can be found here.
Two weeks ago, the book was also soft launched at Unseen Book Market at the table of Tipi Bookshop. Thank you to everyone who came by and of course Andrea for hosting me, which he’ll be doing again at Polycopies in Paris (November 6-10). Maybe I’ll see you there! He will have my book too this weekend at the Institut Pour La Photographie in Lille.
Meanwhile, the book is also available on my website (see about) and the dedicated concave city corners website (see info). For those who didn’t know, prints are also for sale. So if you like a particular corner, let me know.
