ALMA: PHILIP GAISSER & NIKLAS HAUSSER. Ed. by A.K. Lenz. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 212 pp. ISBN 9783944669243 In English.
Due date: November 2016. Publisher's description: Photographer Philip Gaisser and artist Niklas Hausser, along with a pomologist- a scientist dedicated to the study of apples-went in search of rare and lesserknown apple varieties, climbing over fences and into strangers' yards to track their specimens. They not only photographed the rare fruit, but also recorded their findings with 23 different types of 35mm film, many long out of production and long expired. Alma, named for the ur-apple variety from Kazakhstan, is as much a commentary on the rapidly decreasing availability of analog film as it is a record of their apple taxonomy. This lush photo book reads as a compendium about the fine differences in form, color, grain and focus between the films used and the serial beauty of random mistakes such as lint, color fault and rot marks.
