Paul & Carla: Erlebnispark

We are into personal stories, you know that. And for us making books should also be about joy. They do not make you rich, as we all know, so why else then? The upcoming Erlebnispark is both intimate and fun.

We met Paul at one of our workshops in France, we met Carla first through his pictures and then in Paris on the boat of Polycopies last year. Who are they? They are two people who went on a road trip around Poland
searching for coal mines and ended up with the adventure park
that you will see in the book.

It’s simple and raw. Intimate and fun. Authentic.
And this is all that matters.

More on the artists

Dummies made at dienacht Publishing workshops in Metz at the festival Photographie mon Amour and in Leipzig.

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

"Lametta" features Calin Kruse’s nudes and portraits wrapped in a smoky jacket with long strips of shivery icicles. It's hot in there, though.
