KRISTOFFER ALBRECHT »ZIGZAG« – selected by MAREK GRYGIEL

»The author focuses on Europe, taking a zigzag-like route, without any predetermined plan, reaching places in border areas of the continent (the Baltic States, Ukraine, Russia, Portugal, Turkey), and not even leaving out such well-known places as Florence or Cracow — established goals of tourist peregrinations. It is the form of this book that makes it so outstanding. It is designed horizontally, the way the landscape is usually perceived, so one could believe that the photographer limits himself to landscape-like perception of places he has visited. Sometimes the artist adds text notes recording the atmosphere of the place. All the pictures are black-and-white. Both the editing of the pictures and the layout were done by Kristoffer Albrecht himself, creating a very personal work, very consistently made and perfectly printed, something that is common to all “Musta Taide” publications.«
