the Leporello Photobook as a Phenomenon Touch Peter Dekens Photography

touch druk from Peter Dekens on Vimeo.

Photographer Peter Dekens’s series of photographs Touch is displayed at the StadsGalerij BredaPhoto. It tells the story of the 23 year-old Stijn: a man born blind, living in a small apartment in the city. The furniture inside his apartment aren’t obstacles. On the contrary, they lead his way. Peter Dekens portrayed Stijn inside his apartment and during the winter months. Because Stijn does not need light, the lights were consequently left unlit during the evening hours. This rendered Dekens’ work more difficult. In order to reach an utmost factual result, he did not use artificial lighting. His images are a careful reflection of reality. See for reviews ...

Touch is a beautiful photobook. It is designed in a form of accordion which also helps to tell the story. Powerful work, excellent picture editing, interesting design, gorgeous book, and it smells fantastic!

I’m always wondering why the accordion/laparello format is so rarely used for photobooks. What at first might seem an awkward way to organize photography - one long, folded strip of images - after all has its advantages ...
