Peter Leisinger 2008, the new book of his sculptures
It was great and inspiring - as always - to work with my parents, Peter and Maria, on this book. I love my fathers creations that so directly come out of my parents life, sketches on paper and chainsawed in wood, raw and true - but then again I am certainly not unbiased.
Here are a few pages:
On the way from Italy to Switzerland, we stopped of at Sils, where Peter had an exhibition, so I could take some photos of new sculptures for the book. On the way there we saw these three guys enjoying their lunch break.
I enjoy working with other people on creative projects, exchanging thoughts and ideas, driving each other on to try better, witnessing someone else work ethic, these are all elements I really like but what I like the best is the lightness of it - working never seems to be that playful on my own as it is with someone else.
Apart from photographing the sculptures and paintings - or as in the case above both in one- I enjoyed doing the layout for the book, going to print with it and playing with the colours for so long until they were right.
