Johannes Schwartz (photography); Experimental Jetset (book design) - Tiergarten - Amsterdam, Roma Publications, 2014 - 1st edition - 112 pp. - Japanese ring binder - 24 × 33 cm - condition: as new

“Tiergarten” was published in a limited edition. This is no.: / 250. Also signed by Johannes Schwartz. With the original packaging paper.

A sought-after extremely collectible photo book because of the the used printing technique: risography. This technique is similar to silk-screen printing, but heat is used to burn holes in the stencil. Then ink is pressed through these holes. Usually one colour at a time is printed. Images in multiple colours go through the machine (risograph) several times.

“What do zookeepers feed a wild animal in captivity to keep it wild? How can this food be considered prey or sustenance when the animals are kept in a cultivated environment and no longer able, or necessitated, to hunt or forage? Johannes Schwartz explored this premise in Moscow’s city zoo, where he photographed slabs of fish, hunks of raw meat, heaps of vegetables and chunks of bread – foods commonly found in our diets, yet hardly suggestive of human consumption when presented in such a way. In printing the images, Schwartz experimented with dithering and an unorthodox use of colours, effectively using the risograph as a painting tool and exploiting the results.” (source: Perimeter)

  • The book was not as described. A portion of it was damaged and the seller did not respond to my message. This has soured me on catawiki in general, as I don't feel there is enough support.

    I'm so sorry I missed your message. That's very inconsiderate of me. As for the 'poor' condition of the photograph: this is how Erik Kessels found it added it to the book. The individual and unique prints added to this special edition book are all from old 'found' albums hence in often in poor condition. I hope this eases your concerns,
    Kind regards
