Mass psychologist and senior clown – are these popular professions in our time? The ”staged portrait photos show people practicing professions that, at least by name, do not exist. Not yet, … because if you look at the pictures without further knowledge, the depicted and named activities seem … mostly credible….The series … draws a surprisingly precise picture of a reality that is currently being experienced by many.

Edition365 stands for new series of books, self-financed by the artists. All are of the same size and appearance, 32 pages and a print run of 365 numbered copies. The edition is meant to provide photographers and other artists with a place for smaller work, for work-in-progress, to function as an exhibition catalogue or simply as a give-away.
