The Lovers


This book is based around screenshots that were made while watching ‘Discarded: Joachim Schmid and the Anti-Museum,’ a video about Joachim Schmid’s work, realized by the Hillman Photography Initiative at the Carnegie Museum of Art in 2014. At one point in this documentary Schmid is at a flea market in Berlin, looking through a pile of junked photographs. For a brief moment his perusal and the movements of his hands caused the stack to tell the story captured here.

Full color digital printing, 24 page stapled brochure, size 21 x 28 cm, in enclosure size 23 x 32 cm.
