More on the artists

PAK! Pak! is an onomatopoeia which imitates the sound of impact.

..."There are personal stuff, pictures of christian devotees practicing their penitence, pictures of porn shoots, and my mislabelled Kinbaku sessions."

The book feels like an intimate conversation between the two lovers, where one obsessively photographs and the other writes notes.

The book shows a selection of international photobooks from the last decades, with a focus on the photobook as an art object and a storytelling medium.
