PHILIP GAISSER: PETOMIHALYFA. Ed. by Annette Hans. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 36 pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783959050364 In English.
Publisher's description: Philip Gaisser spent a hot summer in Petomihályfa, a small Hungarian village where farmers cultivate the fruit to make Palinka, a potent brand of schnapps. At night the artist took photographs of the dainty fruit as he went past -- without looking through the camera viewfinder. The flash of the camera plucks them from the darkness: blue plums, yellow grapes and velvety peaches thus reveal their true beauty. Gaisser contrasts each image with a page showing a color gradient that corresponds to the color of each particular fruit. The result is a coming together of natural setting and photographic reflection. Philip Gaißer (b. 1980) lives and works in Hamburg and Leipzig. His work has been shown at different venues including Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof, Dresden Albertinum and more recently Camera Austria in Graz. He was also honored with the 2013 Forderpreis annual advancement award presented by the Arthur Boskamp-Stiftung, Hohenlockstedt.
