SummerSommer 2013

A picture book about a 2013 summer vacation in Germany, Switzerland, France, and Great Britain. In Germany the authors/photographers visited the Hanseatic town of Lemgo (near Hannover). In Switzerland they explored Stein (Aargau) and La Chaux-de-Fonds. In France they visited several small towns that are part of the Plus-Beaux-Village circuit, and in the United Kingdom the authors traveled through the south of England, tracing a large circle around London, through small towns and the picturesque landscape, with overnight stays in B&Bs, and visits to National Trust properties (manor houses, gardens) but also cathedrals and country churches, for good reason: the travelers were two couples; a designer and a musician, a musician and an architect.

PhotoGraphs – WrittenLight

When taken literally, a translation of the word ‘photograph’ means ‘written light’. In this book Mikesch Muecke offers the reader/viewer a collection of ‘textual illumination’ divided into categories. The accompanying short short-stories—in some cases no more than a few words—are literary counter weights to the visual text.
