–/–/– is about memory, fragmented memory and the use or misuse of images in a society flooded by images.

This artist's book shows a series of 78 images: vague, almost abstract landscapes, laughing and introvert faces, bare arms and legs. They are fragments of one and the same photograph, which, placed in order, tell a new story. On turning the pages the viewer is asked to use his/her imagination. Are we looking at a family, come together on a sunny day to have their portrait taken? What are the relationships between the various persons? Where and when was the picture taken? The sober design by Ralph Bauer leaves plenty of space for creating one‘s own personal story. The poetic text by Christine Lemke addresses the interplay between the fragments.
