Sam Winston – Dictionary Story
Composition No.1 is a re-imagining of a book originally published in the 1960s. The book is the first ever “book in a box”, by French writer Marc Saporta. When we say book in a box we mean: quite literally a book that comes in a box with loose pages. Each page has a self-contained narrative, leaving it to the reader to decide the order they read the book, and how much or how little of the book they want to read before they begin again. In so many ways, Composition No.1 was published ahead of its time: the book raises all the questions we ask ourselves today about user-centric, non-linear screen driven ways of reading.
For his latest series entitled Genius Loci, the German fine art photographer Thomas Kellner was commissioned to document a number of historical industrial buildings in Germany and Russia. As with his previous series entitled Tango Metropolis, Kellner makes use of his signature 35mm contact print mosaic technique to create interesting skewed renditions of his architectural subjects.
