A preliminary print of "Reverse Collection" will be on display at Atelier de la Mécanique

Book cover: Reverse Collection by Peter Lind

Book cover : front & back

The book is a montage of documentary photography from 1976 to 2012 spread over 128 pages, color and black & white. Its about treating a photographic archive : The documentation, the locations, the events, the people, the seduction, the contradictions and the photography. The book is an object, that has to be handled, turned around upside and down, and its not comfortable with linear book reading. Book page spreads: Reverse Collection by Peter Lind

REVERSE ENGINEERING THE ARCHIVE: PETER LIND’S ARCHIVAL PROJECTS. By Peter Alexander van der Meijden.

Passages taken from the archicle : Saying what Peter Lind is not is easier than saying what he is, and the same goes for his work. One thing that Lind certainly is not, is a photographer, even though photographs are his primary material and he himself is the person who takes them. Lind’s attitude towards photography seesaws between acceptance and resistance. “Photography is a seductive medium”, ... “and the first one to be seduced is the one who takes the picture" ”I want it to look like the myriad of other images that have been made earlier.” Lind works with juxtaposition and association, but symbolism is alien to his world. ”I want to design my current exhibition like a movie, where you move from one scene to another, where one image leads you to the next. It has to be fresh and alive; alive like walking into a movie”. “In order to create an overview, you have to take a certain degree of distance”
