Andreas Trogisch has scanned with his camera inch by inch and assembled the pieces to one large picture. In the book, the entire stripe is mapped on 44 pages at a scale of 1: 2.27 with a total length of 13.20m. Nothing else. So what?‹ you might ask. White paint on asphalt, what can be seen there? A lot! Sun, wind, rain have acted, the asphalt has become brittle, aircrafts rolled over, and after the closure of the airport skateboards, bicycles and prams. This is a rare and beautiful photobook, one of Stop Fix's favourites.
Hackney Flowers, Stephen Gill collects flowers, seeds, berries and other objects from various locations around Hackney, presses them in his studio and photographs them alongside his own photographs and found ephemera. Some of the base photographs were also buried in Hackney Wick, and the consequent staining and decay has left its imprint upon the images, stressing the collaboration with place. A parallel series within the book shows members of the Hackney public with floral details imposed upon their body’s. Stop Fix’s favourite photobook on display.

Chris Shaw captured a dark and spectacular vision of the Californian desert during the summer of 2013 while on a residency in Joshua Tree National Park. He took pictures in the early morning using a strong flash and printed at night in a make-shift darkroom in his bathroom, using an enlarger specially shipped from New York. In this bold and striking series of photographs, the joshua trees and various desert cacti are transformed into haunting anthropomorphic figures and dancing icons. The prints themselves bear the marks of the ad-hoc printing process, with bleeding edges, fingerprints, off-kilter frames and Shaw's signature hand-written titles.

This book presents various examples of abstractions created through photography and photographic processes. Exploring the possibilities of the photographic medium, each artist produces abstract results in different ways: some are camera-less experiments with chemicals and photographic paper, while some rely on close-ups, details and fragments of images whether the body, the natural world or urban landscapes. This book is a great example of the post photographic landscape and a good introduction to abstract photography.

The book itself has was buried below the site of the current olympic stadium. The photographs in this book were taken in Hackney Wick and later buried there.
