This photobook portrays the extraordinary vision of the photograph; a ghost story. Joachim Richau almost depicts a self-portrait of countries, cities and landscapes. The pictures do not reflect the places where they were taken, but the relationship that the artist had with them. Joachim Richau’s perception is haunting and emblematic, and the fact that the photographer inspired himself from his exciting life makes every picture unpredictably fantastic. Richau mainly depicts large spaces with transparent, unrecognisable layers of black patterns. His way of composing narrative opens up for a profound, powerful and dynamic dialogue.
