What is it you like about photo books?

Thanks to books, you can imag­ine some­thing new; you can cre­ate new links be­tween dif­fer­ent im­ages and the text. I find this very re­ward­ing, and that’s why I choose to pub­lish them my­self with Kobal­ann. Why Kobal­ann?

It’s the name of the brown bear in the lan­guage of the Evens, a no­madic peo­ple liv­ing in the Siberian tundra. Kobal­ann is a myth­i­cal an­i­mal that struck the imag­i­na­tion of our an­ces­tors and still ap­pears in our tales and le­gends. It is the ul­ti­mate wild beast. What is the stan­dard you aim for when you pro­duce a new book?

My aim is to print beau­ti­fully il­lus­trated books, with pho­to­graphs or paint­ings and draw­ings, as well as cross-me­dia prod­ucts, fea­tur­ing the work of artists who are in­spired by na­ture. I want the books them­selves to be el­e­gant ob­jects that can make you feel the po­etry of the wilder­ness. www.kobal­ Beau­ti­ful books All Kobal­ann books are works of art in their own right
