DOKUMENTAR is Danish for documentary — the rest of the Danish language is not quite that easy. I recently created a small mini-portfolio book, 40 pages, 40 images of documentary work from the past year. The idea is to always carry this book, every day, so whenever I am out shooting and want to convey to people I meet what I’m after, what I’m doing, I have this book. It’s a Blurb tradebook, 6×9 inches, and nicely thin and light being only 40 pages. The idea of carrying small books in the field comes from me amigo Daniel Milnor.
The book uses a rotated spread as you can see and that works quite well. Book making is ridiculously fun and addictive, it does not always have to be 3-5 month massive projects like my previous two books, this one was done in 2 very fun creative hours of editing, sequencing and bookmaking. I look forward to showing this to people in the field as I work and try to convey what I am doing, what I’m looking for, hoping this will help break down barriers, build trust and start communication (as far as I’m able to communicate with humans that is!).
