You breathe from a garden in your neck



This very intimate book pays a floral tribute to someone who is lost. In 2011 Judith Jockel’s best friend Mieke, with whom she shared a studio and a garden, passed away. Since then, Judith has been using Mieke’s 8×10 inch Cambo, an analogue large format field camera, to photograph every flower in the small urban garden they once shared.

Thanks to a masterful printing, the book is able to bring the photographs to life, reproducing not only the flowers but especially the technical imperfections of the old camera. One of the most notable features is certainly the cover, a perfect synthesis of the themes the book touches upon, thanks to the use of subtle typography, the tactile quality of the fabric and the depiction of a flower quietly fading away. With its slow but intriguing pace, this book will not fail to spark an interest even in the person least enthusiastic about flowers.
