Desiderata. By Andreas Trogisch. Peperoni Books, 2011. 36 pp., illustrated throughout, 24x30cm. Edition of 100 copies, signed and numbered. Images from here.

Book description:

"The four so far published photo folders by Andreas Trogisch fascinated and enchanted us. Now the both last folders 'Asphalt' and 'Desiderata' complete the cycle. They are published in an edition of 100 numbered and signed copies.

The sixth and final folder is called 'Desiderata' and contains 28 b&w photographs from the photographer’s extensive work.

The magical poetical aura of these images oscillates between pausing and going on, longing and home sickness and wanderlust. The folder’s title may help a bit to slightly get closer to its mystery. Wishing! Having the desire to be here and away, wishing forwards and backwards, in the end even a fulfilled life.

That is perhaps the reason why one can view Andreas Trogisch’ images best with eyes closed.

Simultaneously to 'Desiderata' the fifth photo folder 'Asphalt' is published. DESIDERATA is also the name of the cassette with all six folders that will soon be published in an edition of only 20 copies."

I have previously also featured 'Asphalt' by Andreas Trogisch.
