This is the fundraising for the final production of my first photo book. It is the outcome of over four years of work and fully self-produced in collaboration with Studio 24/24 and Present Books. Doing the printing of a book requires a significant investment that I am not capable of funding independently. This is where you come in! 

By buying 11 you are not only purchasing a beautiful photo book that was done with a lot of passion and commitment but also you are supporting a young artist and help make a dream become reality. 

Below you can find all the details on the concept of the book, get insights, see excerpts of the content and find more specific information about the rewards. 

The background

11 is a introspective documentation of a journey called life and the result of a personal reflection on desires, fears and most of all identity

Content

11 is a collection of mostly unpublished photos from different series of the last 6 years, first time to be shown printed and as a body of work. The title of the book is an ode to my birthday, the 11.11. Since always this number followed me around and in form of the book title, it gets synonymous for a life journey and my personal visual exploration of it.

11 is about expression, contrasts and confrontation, but above all about inner conflicts and ambivalence.

The Book

The book includes works and excerpts of different series from the past six years of my photographic practice. Over four years I worked together with Studio 24/24; a young, rising French Graphic-Design Studio, on the artistic direction and visual language of the book. In an ongoing process, we elaborated a concept that includes a pragmatic and simple presentation of my works. They are shown bold and full bleed and as ‚couples‘ - the combinations and the positioning result from playing with associations of forms, colors, composition, and content.

The cover will be done in red linen with a dark green hot foil embossing. The clue is a printed banderole that is wrapped around the front cover - by positioning it in the middle, the red background forms an 11.

11 will be printed as a small edition of 500 pieces and published and distributed by the Berlin-based, independent Publisher "Present Books". For the printing, we chose the Italian company Longo based in my hometown Bolzano. They are a reliable and experienced partner and earned recognition for printing a lot of award-winning international art books in recent years.

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges when publishing a photo book include the possibility of delay, however, the layout is finalized and everything is ready, so we just need green light for the printing. My printer and collaborators are very experienced in dealing with the production and printing challenges involved in making exceptional photography books. If this campaign is successful, I will make sure the book is shipped by the end of November 2019.
