A ghost book

A message to collectors of my work. It has been brought to my attention that I seem to have published a non-existent book. Artist Joachim Schmid has apparently laid hands on a few copies and is offering them for sale here at a price that in any case would appear to be more reasonable than the copies offered on Amazon.com. Please be advised that I myself haven’t seen any copies of this book yet, though some people say: “good name. great book.”

UPDATE (July 6 2013) The mysterious book has already vanished again and the links above have become irrelevant. I have bought one on Ebay and will post soon. The Jean Keller copies seem to be the only ones available anymore.

The Man of the Crowd

The Man of the Crowd is a reflection on a short story by Edgar Allan Poe and a street occurrence that I photographed in Paris. The main part of the work is a series of 56 photographs, tracking a 21st century flâneur, followed by imagetexts based on linguistic analyses of Poe’s story. Each book is marked with a distinct word from Poe’s story, which limits the edition to the number of different words in the tale. Published November 2012.
