Wiese. By Anne Schwalbe, design by Birgit Vogel. Anne Schwalbe, 2011. 48 pp., illustrated throughout, 24x31,5cm.

'Wiese' is a book by German photographer Anne Schwalbe. Wiese means meadows in German, and this is a book of and about meadows.

I do really like documenting projects, or repeating and/or vaguely obsessing over one subject matter or viewpoint, which this book could be said to be. I also really like Schwalbe's aesthetics and the way she "frames" her projects with the use of the envelopes, plain cardboard and string.

A special limited edition of 'Wiese' (including an analogue print) is available here. I have previously also featured Anne Schwalbe's book Blindschleiche und Riesenblatt.
