Mues Design

Published to coincide with the photography show curated by the Archive of Modern Conflict at Paris Photo 2014.

The french folded pages allow for some images to continue onto the next spread, supporting the horizontal flow of this book. Images are strung along in loose and ‘floating’ groups, uninterrupted by text. Images create a narrative of a series of short stories on elementary subjects such as water, fire, air, earth, divinity and space. Works of established photographers Josef Sudek and Eugène Atget are displayed alongside cyanotype prints and images of unknown photographers. Stretching from the early photography of the 1850’s to recent works by contemporary artists.

This book is a treasure trove of photographic curiosities. The cover features a ‘home-made’ cyanotype print of Sergei Yutkevich’s ‘Man with an umbrella’ which served as a leitmotif in the show.
