Adam Jeppesen – Wake

Beautifully and diversely photographed and a just as beatifull subtle narrative. This personal story, made while traveling on assignment, reminds me why i love photography.

“Jeppesen’s large-format photographs are rooted in the tradition of German documentary with its tendency toward classification. This is an impressionistic take on the visual index–one that seeks out the spontaneous and the discarded, the undefined and the uncertain. As the title suggests, the images inhabit that liminal space between darkness and twilight: atmosphere, heavy and thick, flows like a life force through the book, and always manages to obscure as much as it reveals. The specificity of the people, places, and things all fade, leaving light, color, and texture as the only framework, along with the impression that what we see is not necessarily what we are shown.” Steidl.
