THE COFFEE-TABLE BOOK
If you want to join us on our journey to the Arctic Circle and beyond, you will soon notice that LYS is our very own story of the North, written in our images. Images that are the essence of what we have seen, experienced and felt, during long polar nights, on storm-tossed bird islands, in cornflower-blue midsummer nights and silent forests.
We have merged all this in a photo book with convincing high-end features and a generous, clear layout that supports the style of our photography. Short texts in German and English, both poetic and puristic, intensify the emotional aspects that we would like to convey in our images. And as previously mentioned, we have decided to self-publish, because we believe this is the only way to ensure the high standard that we have envisioned right from the beginning. This starts with the choice of images and includes layout, the look and feel of the paper, and cover and slipcase design.
