Calypso Cave / Mark Pezinger Books

Mark Pezinger Books is pleased to present four new publications that explore the search for the photographic subject in different ways. In Doris Lasch’s story Hellfeld, a photographer quite literally goes in search of lost negatives. Calypso Cave by Stefan Karrer gathers travel photos from social media platform​ users whose eagerness for the representative vacation photo has led to a tourist comedy of errors. In Photography as Motif by Caroline Heider, Ruth Horak, Lisa Rastl, and Claudia Rohrauer, the act of photographing itself becomes a source for themes (and problems) that can themselves become motifs. And Photo Collages is comprehensively devoted to the group of works of the same name, in which Boris Rebetez​’ collages,​ representations of landscape, and architecture dissect our habits of seeing.
Mark Pezinger Books is a Vienna-based publisher of artists’ books run by Astrid Seme and Thomas Geiger. The publications range from one-offs to larger editions and from sound works to regular books.
