Book Description

7 Oct 2013
'These pictures are from every time and from every place. When I look at my contact sheets I often lose myself in memories that I share with the people I photographed. Throughout the years these pictures have become my private diary, with a taste and a language of its own. A small world inhabited by my very own, very real people. For me it is interesting to find that condensed and tender moment. It's an entry into what I'm doing today; discovering desires and memories from the past and mixing them with what I encounter in the present. It's all about identifying and presence.' - Anders Petersen

Product Description

About the Author

Born in Stockholm in 1944, Anders Petersen is undoutedly one of the world's most important photographers of the last 40 years. In 1978 he published Cafe Lehmitz, which established his international reputation and is now recognised as one of the classic photobooks of the 20th century. In 2003 he was appointed Professor of Photography at the University of Goteborg. He regularly has workshops and exhibitions throughout Europe, Asia and in the USA and has received numerous grants and awards since the 1970s. These include the 'Photographer of the Year' award in France and the 'Erich Salomon Award' in Germany. He has also been shortlisted for the 'Deutsche Borse' award run by The Photographers Gallery, London. Jacob Aue Sobol is a member of Magnum Photos. He is also represented by Yossi Milo Gallery, New York, the Rita Castelotte Gallery, Madrid and RTR Gallery, Paris. A winner of the 'European Publishers Award For Photography' and of a 'World Press Photo Award', he gained international recognition after the publication of his book Sabine which was the result of a three year period spent in a small settlement on the East Coast of Greenland. He lived there with his Greenlandic girlfriend, Sabine, and her family, living the life of a fisherman and hunter but also photographing. In Spring 2006 he moved to Tokyo, staying there 18 months before returning to Copenhagen, where he now lives and works. He is currently working on the project Arrivals and Departures - a journey from Moscow to Beijing - in co-operation with Leica Camera.

5.0 out of 5 stars VEINS 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase
Great collaborative work. Very strong images by two very important photographers which even though they come from different generations of photographies share a common eye in exploring people. Picture style might be considered in some point very similar or identical but there is a distinct narrative in each photographer especially when it comes to their way to approach portraiture.

An interesting combination of two photographers with a similar style. There are some photos you may be familiar with but overall a fresh presentation.

A collaboration that turned out perfect. The rawness and intimacy of Petersen's and Sobol's pictures work great together. The edit and layout are excellent - get it!

So connected, yet so different. Petersen strongly influenced Sobol, in "Veins" it looks like opposite, sometimes. Brilliant cooperation, brilliant book!
