This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Noted German postwar photographer and writer Andre Gelpke's new publication, Amok, is a personal commentary on the absurdities of our contemporary world. Without being explanatory or anecdotal, he examines with the help of the camera the small, naturally occurring settings of everyday life. True to his motto, "Photography is a whore, never faithful, always feigning," Gelpke sequences his photographs to formulate his subjective view of the world in this artist's book that explores the narrative affinity between photography and literature. Like words, images are Gelpke's means of organizing and narrating his observations and reflect his mania for challenging the world with pictures. Over 100 full-bleed color photographs taken over a 12-year period fill this stunning hardcover publication.
