Day 15 – The Miniclick Photobook Advent Calendar, 2014

Earlier this year, as part of Brighton Photo Fringe and Biennial, we helped organise a photobook fair, where we were fortunate enough to be sat next to Fishbar Gallery. One of the books they had for sale that really caught our attention was Phillipp Ebeling’s’ Land without Past’. It lies behind door number 15 of the Miniclick Photobook Advent Calendar…

In a body of work that has echoes in Glen Erler’s ‘Family Tree’, Phillipp revisited the German village that was his home growing up. The book interweaves his own quiet and calm images with archive photos that depict life in the village during the Second World War, as the publishers put it ‘bridging a gap in personal history’.

An intimate and beautiful collection of images that we would highly recommend exploring.

The book costs £32 and is available from fishbar.
