Max Zerrahn - Snake Legs, White Belt Publishing, 2019, Berlin

 

Softcover, design by Floyd E. Schulze, edition of 350 copies.

"The title of Max Zerrahn’s first photo-book stems from the Japanese proverb which describes the redundancy of Snake Legs and translates it to everyday situations. His photographs, all of which were taken in Japan, many in Tokyo, show us intimate and vivid details, the types of scenes that would typically go unnoticed in the rush of a city of 38 million inhabitants. Instead of Tokyo-neon-pop-clich s, the sequence of images floats between a sense of calmness, subtle irritations and a curious joy for the quirkiness of urban detail. An owl without a face, a plastic eye dropped by the curb, a ladder floating in the sky."
