Making-of Trailer – Photographer Joël Tettamanti is an homme du monde in the best sense of the word. He travels a good deal but always goes at his own pace. Many of his journeys have taken him to places we all know from the news. But he has never been there when the eyes of the world were watching. He went in accordance with the dictates of his own schedule and took his time to see, to explore, and to document. Moving from unspoiled countryside to the centres of agglomeration, he explores the details where seemingly rationally constructed civilisation encounters natural forms. The places Tettamanti reveals in his photographs seem somehow surreal; they show just how absurd and beautiful the world can appear.
This book is the result of an experiment to revive the photo book as a medium in times of digitalisation and to combine a conventionally printed book with a print-on-demand production system: The special edition is regularly up-dated by a series of photographs which is printed digitally in the offset printed book. Additionally, the reader can select a photo of choice and order his individual copy including his photo of choice singled out in color. The premium edition is offered as special edition with C-type print. Special edition and premium edition available on tettamanti.ch/2001-2019
