With a highly original approach to photography, Anders Edstram creates small sequences of sparse images which elaborate a filmic narrative of inconsequential moments, stories of moments in between moments. As Curtis Winter writes in the introduction to this artist’s book, “They appear as the aftermath of some wire brush cleaning of a slate. To which elements were slowly added. Family, some nature, friends, a bit of community, d cor. Images pulled from the gaps between changing nappies, having meals, talking, getting from here to there…” Waiting Some Birds a Bus a Woman and Spidernets Places a Crew are two volumes which collect together some of these stories.
The third issue of a yearly magazine of photographic stories, edited and designed by Belgian graphic designer Julie Peeters. Emphasising the image, the magazine is a visual reader without any accompanying text. In this special archival issue, the stories are sourced from the book collections of RareBooksParis – a secretive Instagram account which shares the rarest fashion books – and Peeters herself, and can be read as a dialogue between two personal libraries. With contributions by Shoichi Aoki, Martin Margiela, Liza Zimmerman Bloom, Joshua A. Walker, Robert Mangold, Takeshi Fujimori, Ettore Sottsass Jr., Robert Morris, Anders Edström, and more.
