Jochen Lempert: Recent Field Work
The subject of interest of Lempert’s work– animal life – is complemented by his exploration of the properties and materiality of the photographic image, as revealed in its developing and printing processes. While seemingly serendipitous, Lempert nevertheless pursues a very clear goal and aesthetic. His is a very careful, subtle world.
The publication is very quiet: even the amount of different image sizes is minimal, so as not to disturb these silent narratives or to distract from the subtleties of the photographs. Paper and reproduction were hugely important issues in this book. Amsterdam's Calff & Meischke printers did a fantastic job with lithography and the careful duotone black and white prints.
