This photobook could be included in a category of innovative book designs. The book unfolds in different ways and directions: one of the central panels unfolds vertically whereas the lateral panels unfold horizontally, allowing for different combination and juxtaposition of pictures. The panels can also be unfolded in ways that allow the book to take different geometric forms and to become a photobook-sculpture.
This book is the result of the collaboration of the largely unknown photographer Flemming Arnholm and the poet Klaus Rifbjerg. Flemming Arnholm went to New York in 1968 where he wrote articles and reviews on photography for a Danish photo magazine. In New York he met and interviewed Richard Avedon, Karsh, Irving Penn and other star photographers. During that period he shot the photos of New York street scenes, which were reproduced for this book together with Rifbjerg’s poems.
