Ben Cope - Child of Night and Sleep, b.frank books, 2012, Zürich

 

Hardcover, cloth bound in cardboard slipcase, edition of 150 copies, design by Alexandra Bruns.

"›When thou awakest wilt thou dissenble all the secet joys,
Or wert thou not awake when all this mystery was disclos´d?‹

With this verse of William Blake the book ends. I do not quite understand the text, but it sounds wonderful, deep, mysterious.
And so are Ben Cope´s images of his beloved. Nude, dark, beautiful and without an answer. Love is real, and yet remains a mystery. A bold dream, but so vulnerable.
With extreme crops, hard black and white, lots of darkness and physically strained image surfaces ›Child Of Night And Sleep‹ is a severe, immediate visual poem from a world without everyday life." (Hannes Wanderer)
