‘East of the adriatic’ is available from 1980 editions for 28,00 €:
“Scott Bourne, well-known skateboarder and writer, welcomes us on board for a balkan road-trip cruising through Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia and Albania to Split, Croatia, by the Adriatic sea. The journey to the end of the night, with the rhythm of an old-time sailor song, of an author always seeking for discovery and strangeness. Bertrand Trichet and Sergej Vutuc exhibit their photographs, as if to express the different sensations of a same journey, and give a hand to Lars Grewe, Jaka Babnik and Scott Bourne himself to illustrate the text. Pierre Villanoba, first dancer of the San Francisco Ballet, signs the foreword and Romain Pareja has left his tattoo studio to draw mythologist figures which achieve to make unique this Balkan journal, to the East of the Adriatic.”

Painted contact by William Klein, courtesy of 51 Gallery, Antwerp:
“An international jury at Photokina 1963 voted William Klein one of the 30 most important photographers in the medium’s history. He became famous in Europe immediately upon publication of his strikingly intense book of photographs, “Life Is Good for You in New York” – William Klein Trance Witness Revels, for which he won the Prix Nadar in 1956. Klein’s visual language made an asset out of accident, graininess, blur, and distortion. He has described his work as “a crash course in what was not to be done in photography.” Klein employed a wide-angle lens, fast film, and novel framing and printing procedures to make images in a fragmented, anarchic mode that emphasized raw immediacy and highlighted the photographer’s presence in the scene. ”
