07 08 09 10 11 12 – The New Book Is Out Now

07 08 09 10 11 12 (Book Cover)

I have opened up the vaults: In 2007 I became serious about digital photography and image processing. As I was going though some of the pictures I took back then, I noticed that some of them I really liked. These pictures are either deeply hidden on this website, or were never published at all. Therefore I decided to create and Archive Series to show some of the old works. 07 08 09 10 11 12 is the first part and covers the early years. During that time I experimented a lot with image processing because working digitally gave me a chance to manipulate photos and it was interesting to see that you could entirely change the atmosphere or create a completely new picture altogether.

Here I would also like to inform you that the continuation of the series is a bit uncertain. The reason is that my publisher wants to publish authors with a first and last name only – and I’m simply rabirius. I was told that some bookshops don’t stock books anymore if the authors don’t have a first and a last name. (I’m curious if they would publish an autobiography by Cher or Madonna. They don’t seem to have a last name as well. 🙂 )

Anyway, the book is now available in book shops in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Certainly, you can also order it online. Stores like Amazon, Bücher.de or Bol have it in stock now. An e-Book version will follow as well in due time.

Before I show you some example pages, I would like to point out that my latest book States of Being still is available. You can find it in books stores around Germany, Austria and Switzerland and in all the online book stores. Also, Amazon seems to sell it internationally now, so you will find it on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.fr and others as well.
