dienacht Publishing proudly presents: Deep Inside by Tatiana Tcherkezyan

Feeling offcast. Flecks of ash fill the air. Slowly, they lie down to my feet. Somewhere inside there is something that destroys, it attracts those indifferent and closed. Others. Those unable to coexist, emotionally impenetrable. The same as me. Deep inside there is the void where light disappears.

The regular edition is sold out. A few copies of the Special Edition with Print are still available (for a preview of the print, please check the last image of the slideshow).

Hard cover, open thread stitching, laser engraving on the cover, 11 x 15,5 cm, 52 pages including 4 fold-out pages, full colour, print run: 90 copies + 10 Special Edition with Print, signed and numbered

Ekaterina Anokhina: Inner Mongolia (2nd Edition)

If the paper of the first edition made the book look a coal mine, the paper of this second edition makes it look like a desert storm.

“And where is it, this place?”
“That’s the point, it is nowhere. It is quite impossible to say that it is located anywhere in the geographical sense. Inner Mongolia is not called that because it is inside Mongolia. It is inside anyone who can see the void, although the word ‘inside’ is quite inappropriate here. And it is not really any kind of Mongolia either, that’s merely a way of speaking. The most stupid thing possible would be to attempt to describe to you what it is. Take my word for this, at least – it is well worth striving all your life to reach it. And nothing in life is better than being there.”
“And how does one come to see the void?”
“Look into yourself.” said the baron.

(From “Chapayev and Void” by Victor Pelevin, translated by Andrew Bromfield)

Edition of 90 numbered copies + 10 copies with a gelatin silver print (numbered and signed)

Self-made crowdfunding: Calin Kruse – You scared the shit out of me, so I’m leaving

About the book
Erotic fairs are probably the only events where all social classes and ages are gathered in the same place.

The visitors – exactly from the hick town where all the pictures were shot – brim over with bigotry. Because on one hand there is the hypocritical tolerance and openness at night, the meat market – and the gazes! – under the cover of eroticism. On the other hand the smooth smugness reveals in the daytime – lived family idyll and dominical church going included.

It is all about schizo provincialism. The abandon and unleashing of the bourgeois which seem enormous at first, in closer inspection keeps exactly within the defined limits. Because in this loud, piercing, adrenalized carnival of drives, the excess is planned. Like that everything is in best order. In the garden plot, on the parking lane, in the frontyard – and in fact also on the erotic fair.

Please note: the book in the preview is a dummy. The final book may be slightly different (which means: even better!), but still quite similar.

About the crowdfunding

This is where I hope to receive a small or big support (in exchange for this and that, of course! see below) for producing the book – printing and binding. The book is limited to 100 copies.
The goal is gathering 2000 € for covering the printing / production costs.
The self-made crowdfunding campaign will run from June 1st until July 1st, 2014. If the project won’t be funded until July 1st, you will receive a full refund on July 2nd, 2014. Otherwise, the book will be produced within one month and everything will be shipped by the beginning of August.

What you can get 
35 €: The printed book
60 €:  The printed book + a 13 x 18 print (edition of 60, signed and numbered)
150 € (4 left): The printed book + a 20 x 30 signed and numbered print on Hahnemühle Photo Rag, 308 g/m², as seen in the preview
500 € (1 left): The printed book + a 30 x 45 cm print (edition of 3) + the 20 x 30 print, both numbered and signed, printed on Hahnemühle Photo Rag, 308 g/m², as seen at the end of the preview

Updates
25.06. Yeah, we did it! Thank you very much to all supporting the campaign and making this book happen! There are still 5 days left for pledging, so if you’d like to receive one of the goodies, please don’t hesitate.
04.07. The book is at the printer, a first dummy should arrive next week.
01.08. All the books, prints and postcard went to the mail office today!

Why self-made?
I’m having loads of ideas for photo books, and also a few finished projects in the drawer (like this one), but not having the financial background for making them; that became quite frustrating over the time – that’s why I decided to go for a self-made crowdfunding campaign.
And why self-made? Because I think it’s easier, closer to the people, and more direct.
If you have any question, please just get in touch or write a comment!

And one last thing: a huge THANK YOU for your interest in my project!

Neu im Shop: LAURA MAKABRESKU – THE MOON IS FOR ADULTS ONLY

You will fall in love with this book… Only 3 copies available!

„Laura Makabresku condenses the fairy tale into a frame. One stage on which everything plays out. There is a heroine existing between the worlds. Beautiful and dark. Her sexuality fluctuates between girlish erotic fantasy and the extreme instincts of nature. In a childish way she is fascinated by death. Her land is inhabited by animals, monsters, people in animal masks, objects—all of them of equal status. The world’s orders tangle together. Death in this land is liberating, a kind of good dream into which we tumble, searching for eternity, and which exists within us as constellations painted on the heroine’s body. The motifs and scenes are repeated. Themes are repeated obsessively. It all exists outside of time, everywhere and nowhere, never and always, in the seventy-seventh land. And eternity is just as cruel as death.” – Magdalena Kownacka

Support Emphas.is

I was very excited when I first heard about Emphas.is, shortly after they started in 2011. It was the first and it’s still the only crowdfunding-platform supporting high quality photojournalism.

Now, it’s time for us to support them, and help Emphas.is to keep the good work. Make a pledge and support this unique project!

Leon Kirchlechner: Nowhere

** German Photo Book Award 2014 for NOWHERE! **
** NOWHERE was selected by Photo-Eye as one of the best books of 2013 **

dienacht Publishing and Der Greif proudly present Leon Kirchlechner’s NOWHERE.

»Nothing […] is anywhere ever simply present or absent.« – Jacques Derrida

Was there something? Or nothing?

With no horizon, one’s view into the distance is impeded. Scanning, searching, one’s gaze comes to a standstill in Leon Kirchlechner’s photographs. The eye may slow, but it doesn’t find repose. The peace is not contemplative: it is restless. The restricted field of view has a narrowing effect. It makes the room strangely dislocated, denies me the geographical coordinates that would give me a feeling of safety. And so, even as the onlooker, I remain dislocated in the usually centrically, often symmetrically composed images. I can’t make sense of this centrality. Nor is it reassuring. Although it gives me pause, it doesn’t offer anything for me to grasp. It’s not the enjoyable, thought-provoking stillness that many works of art inspire. Rather, it’s an oppressive, constricting stillness, one that causes alarm.

»I was immediately enthralled by what I saw,« explains Leon Kirchlechner. »An inky black hole opened up suddenly and incomprehensibly in the cold, bare ground. It appeared to swallow the light. The unstructured, almost two-dimensional black was deceptive; the thought of falling into it made me shudder. How deep was it? What was in it? Was there anything? Or nothing? I expected something. I suspected something. I knew that nothing would happen and yet I was as if hypnotised. Filled with an illusory fear I stood still – and looked at what I could not see.«

This experience has become encoded in his images. The unknown that prompts these seemingly so unremarkable existential tremors within us. That what one sees before oneself is not what one senses. Namely that what appears in the image is not even present. But that absence is exactly what arrests the gaze. The actual subject of the photograph, its raison d’être, is beyond the picture. “The absence of the imaged subject is nothing other than an intense presence, receding into itself, gathering itself together in its intensity,” wrote Jean-Luc Nancy. This is addressed fundamentally and unremittingly in Leon Kirchlechner’s images.
What is present in the image is, in fact, what is absent.

Gabriel Orłowski: Anti-accent

dienacht Publishing · Edition proudly presents Anti-accent, a limited book (100 copies) by Gabriel Orłowski, every copy arrives with a numbered Print!

“(…) I don’t really want to know whether the characters read beatniks, nihilists, right-wing journalists, liberal gibberish or SF writers. Neither do I feel the need to identify them with the music they listen to. We can guess that they probably don’t listen to club music, for example (although they seem to enjoy the disco ball). (…) I think that Anti-accent, even though it portrays people involved in the ‘punk scene’, with all their artistic influences, this aforementioned ‘fall’ of the ideas has a marginal meaning. These photographs ‘are punk’ more than they ‘show punk’. They seem to rather invite you to ‘punk’, than guide you through all the sweaty rehearsal rooms. ‘Punk’ understood as a certain idea, an ethos, a rebellion, showing your bruised ass off to the middle-class conventions. ‘Punk’ that pushes you into action, that has you co-create a community. So, not to repeat anything, Anti-accent rather is a rehearsal room, than shows you one. A rehearsal room that’s familiar to anyone, who doesn’t come back home before the evening cartoons. These photographs seem to come alive with whatever we put into them ourselves.” – Mateusz Romanowski

Gabriel Orłowski was born in 1989; he lives in Warsaw, Poland, and is a member of Merkabah and Acid Lindgren, experimental hardcore bands.
