Keld Helmer-Petersen (1920-2013) was a Danish photographer who achieved widespread international recognition in the 1940s and 1950s for his abstract photographs.

The Black Series

Back to Black is the second in a series of three books, the result of the visual poetry Helmer-Petersen created by scanning negs, prints, drawings, objects, bits and pieces and then enlarging, stretching and cropping into graphic patterns.

This beautifully designed book encourages us to consider the space around the image and the accompanying text as integral to the meaning of the work.

Made in close collaboration with Jens Frederiksen and Michael Jensen, book designer.
