Earth Stands Still eBook

5.00

On October 1st, 2016, I launched a crowdfunding campaign for my first photo book Earth Stands Still. The hardcover book featured 40 photos on 80 pages.

Only thirty-six hours in the crowdfunding campaign, the pre-orders hit the benchmark of €2400, covering the printing costs. All 100 copies of Earth Stands Still sold out within seven weeks.

This eBook is an opportunity for everyone to get a digital copy of the book after all physical copies are gone. By purchasing the eBook, you also sustain my quest for the most quiet photo I can create. Thank you for your support, I really appreciate this.

The story of the book is based on the concept of Bardo, as mentioned in The Tibetan Book of the Dead. Bardo can be translated as an intermediate state, originally describing the transition of existence between two earthly lives: The state after physical death and before rebirth. The Bardo is omnipresent. We are always in a state of transcendence, which evolved into a concept of existence without beginning or end. This picture soon became associated with my love for the vastness of the ocean, and the serenity of the horizon. In many cultures, the horizon used to mark the end of the (known) world, a natural border. But apparently, the horizon is in constant motion – no matter how far we sail, we can never reach an end. There is no border, no abyss, no end.

The book also features the lyrics to Earth Stands Still by No Omega, as well as an introduction by Brian Richman and concluding thoughts by Marie Westerbom.
