Imago Libri


Imago Libri is the first book in a series of books that I am making out of a collection of old books bought at flea markets and secondhand shops. By cutting the old books into spreads I am able to recreate new sections that changes the context and the content of the pictures by placing them alongside other images and thereby creating a new meaning. This process is an intuitive one but the story throughout the book is more into a line that runs from natural chaos to a more human chaos and art. By rearranging the old books I give them a new live and give us a different perspective on their content.
