First Year With Leica – The Documents

Draft of the presentation of the documentations

First year with Leica – The Documents, a collection of images, thoughts and stories from Gustafs brain based on the photos from a 365 project made between November 2nd 2021 – November 1st 2022. He started the project to learn the rangefinder of his Leica M10. Now he will make a documentation about it. No, not a book, it will be a documentation printed on 335gr Ivory Board. This documentation will be made in one batch only, all signed and numbered. If you want to get updates about it please enter your e-mail down below.

About the documentations

Gustaf has selected around 70 photos from his 365-project and remastered them in black and white. A timeless way to present photography, just as timeless as the design of the M-series. The documentations of this project will be presented in a ring binder, this opens up for thicker pages and a playful way for the owner to prioritize the order of the images. Possibility to make a highlight-section for all favorites, and be able to just snap a photo out and frame it with a mat. Or just keep it as an ordinary book to find inspiration.

The plan is to release this documentation in January 2023, in a ring-binder for a limited first batch, and as a digital edition. Both of them will be released here at Gallery Afém only.
