Another World

Another World is a small book containing 24 photographs and 24 news headlines taken on July 10, 2011. It presents two different worlds that somehow both exist and that both seem very distant. A magnifying glass is supplied to study another world closer. With it, you can see how the happy-go-lucky red soldier beetle is busy making love, and read how the ship in the Volga is sinking.

Full colour perfect bound paperback, 54 pages, 3.3 x 5 inch.

The edition is small as well, limited to 75 numbered copies.

Leerdam, The Netherlands, 2011
