Selected as a Book of the Week by Mårten Lange
After several smaller publications on individual groups of work, we now present the first comprehensive monograph on the biologist who has worked as a photographer since the early 1990s. His photography highlights the similarities between the human and animal worlds, or the ephemeral appearances of waves, flocks of birds and volcanic clouds, in surprising poetry and minimalist casualness. The resulting formations, patterns and structures are both modest and impressive artistic documents of the living world. Lempert presents 450 of his works, mostly composed in groups and sequences, from more than 20 years of artistic production.
