Thomas Vandenberghe

Out of stock

They went to a pond, in the pines.
The first time they were there together, wild and free.
The second time, after months, he found himself in the same place alone at night, measuring the forest with restless steps back and forth “`Nobody would find you here for months” he said to himself.
This time they just sat on a rock, next to the water.
“It would be nice if you were always easy going like this” she said
“Uh” he said, his eyes lost in running water.
The rage was gone and with the rage, everything else was also gone.
“Things will be fine from now on”
“Yes maybe”
“I want to go back”
“There’s no way out either”

Product Description

“Now my pictures communicate with one person, but maybe I can communicate with more that just one person.”

80 pages, colors and BW
20×29 size,
French Fold Stab Strip Binding, 2 Colours Silkprinting on White Cloth.
A carefully hand-made photobook.

The “Can’t pay you to disappear” urgent unraveling of the life-span of an intense relationship where love, death and obsession mix, also follows Vandenberghe’s ever-changing relationship with photography, from his early clean minimal images to his experiment with collage and physical intervention on the prints themselves.
The images of the book are scanned from Thomas’ original darkroom prints and mostly retain their original sizes, giving a precious insight to the photographers’ process and evolution.
