Wandering

66 black and white photographs, a poem and a prologue by Jon Erwin Staeheli.

 


"The photobook 'wandering' shows pictures from the series 'scrubs', 'private roads' and 'promenade'. It illustrates the no man's land around cities in Switzerland, France and Japan. The japanese title of the book 'meikyu' means 'Labyrinth' and describes a journey on hidden tracks that usually get lost in the bush. That's how one discovers abandoned places. Despite harsh weather conditions they disclose their secrets and their beauty if one can resist an alarming feeling of loneliness. The series refers to novels by Yasunari Kawabata, Alain-Fournier and Robert Walser."
