Books on Books #16.
Photographs by Krass Clement.
120 pp., 55 duotone illustrations, 9½x7".
Photographed in a single evening with only three rolls of film, Krass Clement’s Drum is now considered one of the most important contributions to the contemporary Danish photobook. Concentrating on one principal character – a hunched, weather beaten old man who sits alone with his drink, Drum comments on community, the outsider, alienation and the terrors of being alone. Books on Books #16 presents every page spread from Clement’s masterwork with an essay by the photo historian Rune Gade called Halting, Without Halting: On Krass Clement’s Photobook Drum.
