Terribly Awesome Photo Books
37cm x 30cm.  pages, colour photographs. Unbound folded newspaper.
“For several years, Paul Kooiker and Erik Kessels have organized evenings for friends in which they share the strangest photo books in their collections. The books shown are rarely available in regular shops, but are picked up in thrift stores and from antiquaries. The groups fascination for these pictorial non-fiction books comes from the need to find images that exist on the fringe of regular commercial photo books. Its only in this area that its possible to find images with an uncontrived quality. Whats noticeable from these publications is that theres a thin line between being terrible and being awesome. This constant tension makes the books interesting. Its also worth noting that these tomes all fall within certain categories: the medical, instructional, scientific, sex, humour or propaganda. Paul Kooiker and Erik Kessels have made a selection of their finest books from within this questionable new genre.” (publisher’s blurb)
