Anne Geene and Arjan de Nooy offer a fresh, often humorous way of looking at the world through their pseudoscientific work. Their previous publication, ‘Ornithology’, an alternative guide for birdwatchers, was awarded the “Best Book Design from all over the World” at the Leipzig Book Fair. Published to coincide with an exhibition at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, their next collaboration is about a fictional photographer who lived from 1955 to 2010. Geene and De Nooy created this book based on this person’s work, which references various stylistic periods and art movements – an “encyclopaedia” of photography but also the personal life story of a universal photographer.
