At the time of the project, Leif Sandberg scanned old negatives from his father’s holiday pictures. He found images of deserted landscapes that conveyed an uncertainty about where you are and became part of the depicted fragility of our existence. The project itself developed into worlds beyond what we see, “beyond the mirror”.
”These images are both hauntingly beautiful and eerily unsettling, evoking the irrational fear of the unknown that is ingrained within us all while simultaneously sparking a sense of curiosity.” ”For those on the existential side of life, this book is an absolute must-have.” Thomas MacDonald at Musée Magazine.
