Vantage Point Is a New Collaborative Photography Book by Artists Daniel Everett and Mårten LangeDesigned and published by Actual Source.
Vantage Point is a new book that started out as a chance encounter between American artist Daniel Everett and Swedish artist Mårten Lange. The two met in 2015 during the One Thousand Books art book festival in Copenhagen after Lange spotted an image that Everett took that was strikingly similar to his own. More than just another image from an Instagram hotspot, both of their images were shot in almost the exact same place and vantage point.
What followed was a collaboration between the two, where they started to compile images together from various locations they’ve visited in Japan. The resulting work was previously shown in issue #56 of FOAM, but Vantage Point presents the joint collection in its entirety.
Both artists freeze-frame passing glimpses of the built environment. When supersized, these images of telephone poles, construction workers and building windows, appear like abstracted paintings.
The book is designed and published by Utah-based studio Actual Source and spans 176 pages, including essays by Jesus Vasallo and Paola Paleari. Purchase your copy for $68 USD.
