OVER PHOTOBOOK

01.12.2017

It may have all begun when I was nine, and my younger brother Hubert and I managed to lasso a bird. Or maybe it’s just a hereditary disorder.

An eternal quest for a world that would belong to nobody but me. Searching for a form which only imply the content. Which guides without defining. It doesn’t matter what I see when looking but what I feel. Take a look, new photobook is about it. OVER: 47 documentary photos + 1 not


First things first: why do I call OVER a photo book, and not an album? An album is a form of presenting photos, while a photo book means story telling by means of the photos. OVER tells a story about a world that exists only for a very short time and is so inaccessible that it is hard to believe it really exists. 

The book was designed by Ania Nałęcka – Milach. Her projects have received all the most important awards in the world, including POYi, the Best Photography Book Award, the Paris Photo/Aperture Foundation Photobook Award, or The New York Photofestival.
