Publisher's Description
Inspired in part by a German photography book from 1931 with the same title, ‘Der Baum’ features 44 photographs of trees taken by Van der Weijde in recent years. The tree's locations range from historical sites like Hitler's elementary school and the scenes of famous crimes, to unidentified places that give rise to oblique atmospheres and titles such as 'School', 'Road' and 'Park'. As in his other publications, Van der Weijde deals in typological representations that explore the photo book itself as an object.

'Der Baum presents forty-four photographs of trees taken by Van der Weijde over the last several years at diverse locations in Europe and Brazil. Titled for their locations, some of the images become filled with significance, Hitler's elementary school or scenes of famous crimes, while others, 'School' or 'Road' are anonymous and descriptive. Like Van der Weijde's previous publications, Der Baum is a stunning combination of traditional D.I.Y publishing, photographic typology and a nuanced relationship to the materiality of printed matter.'- Daniel Espeset from photo-eye Newsletter
