Eyes Like Slumber marks the progress of my personal quest for silence, emptiness and luminosity; it continues the pursuit for quiet and vast spaces.

Eyes Like Slumber is limited to 250 copies and will be available through the contact form on this website for €25 including shipping – no matter where on this planet.

The softcover book (21cm x 21cm, approx. 8“x8“) features 29 photos on 36 pages. Printed at Printzipia, a highly eco-certified facility in Germany on matte 150gr/sqm Mundoplus recycling offset paper. Accompanied by a set of three postcards, printed on matte 300gr/sqm Mundoplus recycling offset paper, and one of 50 different 6cm x 6cm eco-friendly business cards.

Like the previous monograph, Earth Stands Still, it 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: “At this moment, your state of mind is by nature pure emptiness. (…) this state of mind is not just blank emptiness, it is unobstructed, sparkling, pure and vibrant (...). This mind of yours is inseparable luminosity and emptiness in the form of a great mass of light; it has no birth or death“.

The foreword for Eyes Like Slumber was authored by Keith Mendenhall. While working with architect Frank Gehry, Keith Mendenhall was primarily responsible for overseeing the production of a series of award winning books. More than that, he is a wonderful and kind person with a great understanding of the enormous artistic spectrum of photography.
