Six consecutive photo folders by Andreas Trogisch have been published so far. All six have been published in an edition of only 100 numbered and signed copies, some titles are sold out already.
This box set comes with a print run of only 20 copies and includes all six books published by Andreas Trogisch to date: VON FERNE, MAGICO, MERCEDES, TECHNIK, ASPHALT and DESIDERATA.
As the last book the box is called “Desiderata”, altogether it contains 137 b&w and color photographs from the photographer’s extensive work. The magical poetical aura of these images oscillates between pausing and going on, longing and home sickness and wanderlust. The title may help a bit to slightly get closer to the mystery of the photographer's fabulous world. It's about wishing – having the desire to be here and away, wishing forwards and backwards, in the end even a fulfilled life.
That is perhaps the reason why one can view Andreas Trogisch’ images best with eyes closed.
