This book is Dana Lixenberg’s magnum opus. After working for 23 years on this subject, the publication of a comprehensive book about it, is a major thing in her career. I was honoured she invited me to team up with her.
The challenge was to come up with a reproduction that could match her photographic prints on fiber paper. That is why I suggested to print using two blacks and two grays. The book went into reprint after 4 month only. I like to think that this succes was helped by the quality of the repro’s. The book was nominated for the Paris Photo/Aperture Photo book Award 2015.
