The new book by Swiss photographer Joël Tettamanti is a statement and an experiment.

In the era of digitalization the book rediscovers the unique qualities of print, and combines the means of traditional book production with print-on-demand in one and the same book. This allows for Tettamanti to update some of the contents on a regular basis, and for you to make a more active choice about your very own issue of the publication “Works 2001-2019”.

The Basic Edition is carfully curated by the editors and offset-printed in black-and-white.
The Special Edition is regularly up-dated by a series of photographs which is printed digitally in the offset-printed book. In addition, you can select a photo of your choice that is printed in colour. Each motive can only be selected six times.
The Premium Edition is regularly up-dated by a series of photographs which is printed digitally in the offset-printed book. In addition, you can select a photo of choice that is printed in colour. Each motive can only be selected six times. PLUS: This edition is offered with a C-print, signed by the photographer and limited to an edition of 20.

About Joël Tettamanti

Photographer Joël Tettamanti is an homme du monde: He travels a good deal but always goes at his own pace. He takes his time to see, to explore, and to document, moving from unspoiled countryside to the centres of agglomeration, where rationally constructed civilisation encounters natural forms. The revealed places seem somehow surreal; they show just how absurd and beautiful the world can appear. With his particular view onto the world Tettamanti is a regular contributor to magazines such as Wallpaper. His work has been exhibited all over Europe, in Brazil and in the US, and is part of private and public collections. (Image © Thomas Rousset)

About the Book

“Works 2001-2019” is a work-in-progress, in the best sense of the word. It provides an overview on Tettamanti's work so far, invites readers onto a journey along the long-term subjects he addresses, and also allows for the photographer to include upcoming projects to add new perspectives to this context. The book comes in three different editions: While the Basic Edition presents all photographs in black-and-white, the Special Edition offers readers the choice to choose their one favourite image to appear in colour. The Premium Edition provides an additional limited edition print on top.
