Hardcover, design by Steve Nakamura, printrun 500 copies, signed.

A new photography book about food. Haunting, beautiful and slightly humorous, Nearly Eternal traces a fine line between reality and fiction.

Negotiating different levels of artifice, the photographs challenge the assumed authenticity of the food book, inciting artificial desire in the viewer’s mind. Each photograph is a portrait of food in its perfect form – as display.

Wallpaper Magazine says:

The photographer Norbert Schoerner has turned his camera to the subject of food, working alongside Tokyo-based art director Steve Nakamura to create a sublime and mysterious portfolio of solitary meals, obscure ingredients and improbable still lives.

Nearly Eternal is not an everyday foray into edible imagery. Schoerner is an acclaimed and accomplished photographer, a pioneer of digital imagery with numerous fashion credits to his name and has long-running collaborations with The Face, Dazed & Confused and the Chapman Brothers. The German photographer’s partnership with Nakamura – another regular collaborator – treats food and its accessories as if they were props in an ongoing but obscure narrative. Both men revel in the use of rich blocks of colour and abstract forms, as well as the physicality of working with real things in real places.
