The original dummy was shortlisted for the 2012 International Fotobook Festival and subsequently shown at Le Bal, Paris, and f-stop Festival, Leipzig. It was also selected for Photobookshow D in Helsinki and shortlisted for the Unpublished Dummy Award at Unseen Photo Festival, Amsterdam.
Thanks again to Markus Schaden for suggesting the unique folding structure and to Harvey Benge and to Wolfgang Zurborn for help with editing and sequencing!

While walking from my guesthouse to the exhibition space I passed by this scene every day. This is my best shot so far.
Before the festival opening.
The exhibition space we have in Leipzig is wonderful. Yesterday we painted the walls, today I did the framing. I am not really satisfied with my prints (some of them have minor irregularities close to the bottom), but I guess I have to live with that for now.
I am very happy to be part of the group exhibition “Kammerspiel” at Spinnerei Leipzig during f-stop Festival from June 23 till July 1, opening reception Friday June 22, 19 h at Spinnerei Halle 18. The bookworks of the participating artists were all shortlisted for this year’s dummy award. So not only my Pelikan dummy will be shown during the festival, but also images on the wall. Stop by if you’re in the area!
I am very happy to announce that the shortlistet dummies from this year’s International Fotobook Festival – among them my “Pelikan” bookwork – will travel to Leipzig for f-stop, the 5th Festival for Photography from June 23 till July 1.
Again, if you’re interested, here is a short video of the book:
