TAIYO ONORATO, NICO KREBS »AS LONG AS IT PHOTOGRAPHS | IT MUST BE A CAMERA« – selected by ANOUK KRUITHOF

»Taiyo and Nico are camera freaks and they have transformed their obscure camera fetish into an amazing large-format duo publication. The first part is full of photos of crazy cameras. Among others, there is the suitcase camera, the tortoise camera, the rock camera and the macbook pro-camera. The second part is full of wonderful, romantic, mysterious, thoughtful photos. You can browse through the two publications synchronously and see associative connections. In addition to photos, there are two spreads of screenshots of conversations on Ebay, where they have put adds to sell the crazy cameras. Potential buyers comment on the adds with hilarious questions like: Is the tortoise camera waterproof? Does a camera have a soul? But also some quite aggressive comments “Hey Nico, you fucking cock sucker … your mother is a filthy cock sucking whore and more …”: shocking … What is happening on the net? This publication(s) is just RAD!«
